    What are your views on piracy?

    Either music, movies, or books...what say you?

    I have a love/hate relationship with piracy. It is great to get things that are out of print, or hard to find, easily. I downloaded the first three Lou Christie albums, and those were vinyl rips of high quality.

    That being said, I think it is terrible when someone downloads, and then doesn't buy. I always buy, or go see the movie.

    Nothing wrong with it, unless it's copyrighted content. Entertainers still make their money in other ways, anyway.

    Yeah. I'll buy stuff from small-time artists and whatnot, but I have no problem with pirating movies and TV shows.

    I download TV shows and movies all the time, but if I reaaally really like something and I'm likely to watch it again, I will buy it. Same with music. I'll download a couple of songs, if I like what I hear then I'll buy the album.

    I don't know how to "pirate" media. I pay for things like music and movies and such. I am not necessarily opposed to it. But I think the companies and artists should be making something from it. I wish they would meet in the middle and lower the prices of buying music for downloads etc.

    What gets me is that the new Batman movie is $14.99 from the iTunes store.

    That same Batman movie is available, 3 days earlier than the US release date, in The Pirate Bay, for free.

    I haven't downloaded it yet, but it's tempting....

    The Pirate Bay? Isn't there some danger of being tracked or am I just the clueless old lady my son seems to think I am? ;b

    In your Bittorrent client user settings hit the Force Encryption option.
