The only good artists even worth buying an entire CD for are guys like John Legend who don't hold back at all.

I actually would buy music online (and did for a while) but stopped because I got tired of the whole DRM nonsense and the mess it brings with it. The music companies are shooting themselves in the foot putting that crap on and I can't imagine why anyone in their right mind WOULDN'T choose to pirate over paying for a crippled version of the same thing. If they lose that, I'll be happy to pay for it.

As for software, I try to pay for it when I can, but sometimes it's tough and I'm cringing when I pull out my card to pay for it. I bought my first legal version of Photoshop and Lightroom last year because I figured if want to become pro, I better not play around with pirated software. Also, while the prices are quite expensive for the lay person, it actually is worth it, because you can do so much with it and you'll make that money back many times over eventually. What really hurts is paying for the upgrade after you just bought the damn thing.

I'm guessing you bought CS3 and just heard about CS4?

Yup. And Lightroom 2.0. I don't have to upgrade I guess, but some of the new feature sure would be nice. I should probably upgrade my camera first.

You can tape anything you want off broadcast. However, you are not permitted to distribute it in any modified form, ie: without commercials. Thus bittorrent TV is illegal. Especially with the advent of digital (lossless) copies, that is why they bust your balls.

The RCMP doesn't care about filesharing.

They believe they have more important things to police.

Like Polish people. :P

Same thing happened to me when I bought CS2. It was $118 on a student discount and like 2 weeks later CS3 came out. Doh!

I made enough money from my illegal copy of 3DS Max to buy a license.

It's totally legal in Canada, until it's not, I'll be downloading.

The funny thing is that I end up buying a lot of movies even though I download them. It's my way of previewing them and I never feel bad downloading because my DVD collection is 350+. The movie and music industry has helped create this situataion, who says artists need to make a million dollars a year? When you charge $30 for a new DVD or movie and it sucks or there is only a few good songs, sorry but people are going to take whatever alternatives they can. Would it really be so wrong for the artists to make $100,000 a year? Especially doing something they likely enjoy?

Same with cable, if I'm going to pay for it and then also have to watch 18-20 minutes worth of commercials in a single hour long show, sorry but it's not going to happen. Especially once you get used ot watching TV without commercials, that shit is just way too much. If the various organizations put they're greed aside maybe you might see people think twice before jumping on the torrent bandwagon.

And last I heard, they're still making crap loads of money.

i dont agree with the fact that if they catch u downloading one movie it's like up to 10 years in prison and up to $250,000 in fines. or is that distributing? i cant remember. anyway i still think that's a HUGE punishment when oj gets 15 for kidnapping and consp. armed robbery.
