Counterfeiting involves making unauthorised copies and distributing them for profit. Downloading Warez is not counterfeiting.
Piracy involves commandeering another persons products, Thus piracy can only occur on physical objects. Downloading Warez is not Piracy.
Stealing, is the same as piracy.

There is no removal of the original data, so Downloading is not Piracy, or stealing.
There is no profit from distributing data on torrents, so it is not Counterfeiting either.

99% of piracy claims are bull****. People who download stuff were not likely to ever buy it otherwise, so there is infact no loss of Profit to the people who originally produced it.

I dont believe that it is wise for me to voice my oppinions on piracy (on the widely regarded term anyway, not going to get into a philosophical debate here either) here, first off in respect to the forum itself due to its non piracy stance, seccond i dont think the admins like people peosudo (sp?) admiting to piracy or people hinting that they have done so in the past, so with that in mind i would prefer not to discuss this here.......

just to clalify im not admiting to piracy or insinuating that i either agree or disagree with it in anyway......

Squall makes a good set of points.

By strict definition theft, counterfeiting, or piracy does not occur when downloading warez.

The reason it's illegal is because copyright law simply says that you cannot make copies available to others and others cannot come into possession of such copyrighted material without paying for it. So in summation: legal action is taken against parties and individuals not because it's classified as theft, but because it's in violation of copyright law.

In my own words: "It's not theft, but it's still illegal regardless."

Please go die in a ditch. Someone who downloads a copy of Madden NFL 2010 or Final Fantasy is not as bad as a rapists or murderer, and there is nothing wrong being homosexual.

Rape and murder hurts somebody directly. Getting a copy of Barbie's Adventures for free however, does not.

And I've pirated before and I've never said "Yo yo whats up my brother" nor am I really poor, so **** off.

IMO people take piracy too far. You're not killing someone and shouldn't be treated like you are. The whole "Piracy kills the market thing" is bs like squall said. You're not physically harming anyone/anything.

"Yo Yo whats up my brother"
eh i think you have the wrong sterotype here, that is for gangsta rappers.

the correct sterotype now would be "OmG!!! 1M s0 l33t 1 D0w7l0D3D W4R53ZZzzzZZZZZ!!!!!111!111!111!! L0L"

anyway this is not either clalifying or arguing with you oppinion, just pointing out the whole mistake steriotype.

i mabie overdone the l33t a bit there though so mabie it would be better to condence it into a more logical example.

you do realize that the definition of piracy can change overnight. Merriam-Webster already updated their definition of piracy (and I'm pretty sure they are the 'official' dictionary of the English language)

Definitions don't mean ****, anyways. Stop trying to tip-toe around it....just ram it in the ass where these pigs hurt the most :D

I did not approve of this definition change, therefore it does not exist.
