Hooray for government! Homeland security won't protect us from terrorists, but they sure as hell seem to be willing to protect us from ourselves.
Well duh, this is America, $ first and foremost ....well actually I suppose tehy have to look like they're doing something...anything...Isn’t the department of Homeland Security’s primary mission is to prevent, and respond to acts of terrorism in the United States?

Yeah genious that. So you work your ass off making a film, designing stages, writting scripts, hiring actors, hiring special effects artists, spend a fortune on advertising, bring in stunt teams, make-up artists, hire tonnes of engineers, sound specialists, musicians, matte artists etc...and then some spotty geek teenageer just l33ch's your hard work because the miserable ******* can't be arsed to spend his pocket money....yeah so I assume then, they're meant to do this all free?
What exactly gives you the idea that ep3 is not making money?Samor said:well, I think this was an understandable action...
and if a good film is popular, the ppl that made it can't make money on it? Well, if you think like that, maybe you shouldn't be seeing the movie in question....
There's a simple solution you know... Just don't go to the movie. And why resort to piracy if the movie is terrible anyway?bobide said:what magic of movies? $10 so i can watch a terrible film?
Duh... If it were the same price what's the risk? A 10 buck fine isn't going to scare anyone from doing it.cowfez said:And the punishment for downloading the Star Wars movies?
Is it the price of admission? Nay, it is far crueler.
I only see stealing is by taking physical object, but thats my take. But i do want a way like Itunes to sell movies over the internet for people like me that wanna watch a new movie in my own home. I don't download movies because i dont wanna get caught. I understand that some people can't afford it if they go to college but dont you have more change getting introuble by downloading in dorms using the Universities internet in the USA? Well i don't judge others choice to downloading and just hope you don't get caught. Oh yeah i do see piracy as good thing in certain aspects. I remember all music cd's used to cost 20 bucks and once Napster came out they dropped to $10-13 dollars. I see that as a good thing. But some people go overboard with downloading.Lentoman said:My personal opinion:
Anyone using theft/stealing in conjunction with software-piracy/copyright in a sentence have no idea what they are talking about and cannot be trusted. Why? Well, nothing is stolen, it is duplicated: Unauthorized duplication, what a concept...
The entertainment industry deciding what you see and in essence, what you do. Corrupted politicians selected by the people, makes all of this possible. New laws are now being created by and for the industry. Do the politicians actually bother finding out what people think, or more importantly, do they even have any idea what it is all about? I think they are pretty clueless, these laws aren't for the people. Welcome to the corpolitical world of the 21st century.
What's next...? What are you looking at, you're stealing visions, you're going to jail! Hey, you, what are you doing here!? You're not authorized to hear this song, you're going to jaaail!
