Poll Is Now Re-Opened!
if you had enough money to live more than comfortably,
and could afford to buy movies, would you still pirate?

Well, it's become kind of a hobby (/OCD), so yes, probably ^_^

seems like our KAT founder wasn't pirating apple songs even though i'm sure he had enough money to buy a measly itune  >:( ... if you want me to answer this question truthfully, gimme enough money and then i'll tell you  ;D

The Founder of KAT was arrested because he was buying Apple Products!
I am definitely never going to pay for a single thing, ever again!

Depends.
If I had the money to buy what I want, I'd still pirate it to see how well it works with my computer. If it runs well, higher chances of me buying it.
However if I don't have the money, I'd pirate it anyway.

yes i would still pirate, like most people who use torrents i like to try out things before i spend money on it. with the collapse of the video rental industry it is hard to know what movie is worth watching more then once, so i download movies and if i really like them i will go out and buy the dvd.

Given how all of this bad shit happened as a result of a legal purchase, I'm not feeling to inclined towards paying for EVERYTHING :P

I'd use piracy to test, as I've been doing so faaar  ::)
Then I'll buy, then I'll use my fast connection to help others...ahem...do the same. Provided I'd still have said connection.

Definitely do your research before handing out money to entities that clearly don't deserve it - case in point, Apple!!

Piracy to me is what used to be called Demo. I actually have bought games because I fell in love with them, after playing the pirate version. I have even bought shows, biggest buy for me being StarGate 1.. but that was when money problems have not consumed me.

Another reason is all the shitty DRM some games have pulled. I do not accuse the companies for trying to protect their product.. but putting first their own selves and then their consumers, definitely is something I hate. I have bought Spore back in time and never even touched it. It is one of my favorite passtimes ever, but the DRM was simply stupid. I do not remember why I could not install it one of the times I wanted to play it, but I remember I had to communicate with EA and ask them to unlock the abily or some shit like that... yeah.. no.

Strange as it will sound, I hate Steam (which is the only way to get so many games), so even if i buy games on it, I still keep them pirated on my PC. I do not per se know why I do not have to have steam around in my PC and the only times I use steam along with games, is to just play on steam for some minutes, so I can write reviews on steam. One of the main reasons, is because with Steam I feel restricted. I want my games other times in C:\Games and other times in D:\Games, not C:\Games\Steam\even more steam\steamengine\wherever\. Not to mention that it can potentially give problems with games that use mods, like seeings mods as the game being damaged and wanting to restore it or whatever.
Any darn fool can circumnavigate the world sober.

Pirates for life...  The Community involved in Piracy since day one is still alive and kicking. It all might be based on sharing content, but the ppl are the fuel to this massive engine and without the ppl there would be no Community and no Pirates lol...

If I had enough money, I'd still Pirate and prob be buying everything that isn't ripped yet to share with everyone that may want it... Sharing = Caring
