Disclaimer: rant ahead. If you don't like it then don't read it.

It bothers me that so many people are copying and taking things without any payment to the author(s). From applications to games, movies to anime, music to e-books, pirating is rampant.

Are people really this lazy or greedy to get their asses out and make money? A lot of potentially good sequels are cancelled because they were deemed to unprofitable. The devs need support too you know. And unlike you cheapskates out there, they're not making the stuff for fun. They're doing it to feed their families and to make a living.

Hell, I bet half of you people out there who watch subbed anime never paid a single cent to the developers. Walk to freakin' Blockbusters or buy it online for only a few bucks, people! Buy it and get other benefits too! What's wrong with paying? Money is for buying things and it's not just restricted to the basic essentials! Basement dwellers - get off your fat asses, find a job, get your own house, and get your own stuff - not pirating them.

People are always saying, "were do u donload it" about games and apps. A typical example: torrenting right now. Hope it's worth the waiting time!

I'm not saying I've never done this. I have. I have pirated copies of some legacy (pre 2000) software. I do feel guilty and do plan on searching for legit copies.

In a nutshell: why do people have to pirate? It's detrimental to the economy and really, it shows just how imperfect we are as humans.

    Because people are either too lazy or too impatient to do it the right way. The only reason that I see for piracy is if it was released in another country and has little or no chance of being released where you are. Even then, people should give credit towards the creator.

    People have to pirate because they don't wanna pay.
    Also, torrents =/= pirating. It's the content people put on torrent sites.

    Okay, I stand corrected at that point, but you do get what I'm saying, right?

    I download music without buying it. But I used to buy music, however your argument is flawed.

    Are you kidding? I applied for 10 jobs numerous times and got rejected because of the economy, please watch the news sometimes.

    As for games and other things, I always purchase those because I like them legit because they are the best quality of all things.

    Also as for anime and manga, I don't live in Japan and translated manga and anime does not arrive in the states for sometimes a year.

    Wait, if people can't find a job, why the hell are playing video games instead of TRYING to find one?! The people who do manage to find jobs in this economy are the ones who are actually serious about finding jobs! I know, because that's what I did. My parents aren't supporting me financially so I have to do it myself. In other words, people who can't find jobs and give up will never find a job. That's al I have to say about the issue.

    No you're wrong again. I really need a job and for the past 6 months I've been rejected left and right. Don't try to talk like you know what's its like to live in my shoes. Also why am I playing video games when I don't have a job? Because my birthday was in December and I have family members.

    No, I'm not talking about you. I'm talking about the people who do apply (i.e. the people who aren't trying to find jobs).

    Don't press the issue further, please. The last thing we need is another pointless argument.

    It just looked like it since it was right below my post and sometimes people tend not to quote things. My mistake.
