Quote from: ForeverZer0 on October 04, 2013, 09:18:58 amI program using Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate, a $11,304.15 piece of software. Did Microsoft just lose that much money because I do that? No, I would never pay that much money for software[...]but realistically I would only ever actually buy maybe 1/15 of the movies that I download.
Quote from: Zexion on October 04, 2013, 02:36:42 pmSee this is what I don't get about people who pirate (including myself lol). What makes us think that we are entitled to use professional software and watch any movie we want, when we clearly cannot afford it and don't feel we have to pay for it?
Quote from: Blizzard on October 19, 2013, 03:29:06 amYeah, this is another example of how piracy helps spread the word is acts as a form of marketing. Maybe I come across an old game and like it so I check out what new stuff the company made and buy something.
Quote from: Blizzard on October 04, 2013, 02:33:19 amThe issue is actually somewhat more complicated. Most people who pirate wouldn't buy the product anyway so technically the companies are losing a lot less than they claim. On the other hand there are companies that make overpriced products and expect people to buy them without even trying. Piracy becomes useful in a sense that you can try something before you buy.
