those who get the shared content mainly do not have the money to buy it.
Utter BS! You have no way of making sure only "qualified" poor people get access to the content. For every person who can't afford it, there are most likely 5 people who can afford it downloading it.
And here's a radical concept for you: if you can't afford it, do without. That's what other people do. Sorry to be harsh, but I am sick and tired of people who feel they are entitled to freebies and handouts just because they think they should be.
Food stamps and welfare so that someone can eat are one thing. Pirated movies and music are NOT basic necessities.
If you don't have the money to by the admission ticket then the extra eye won't hurt the painting or the museum.
Actually, some exhibits require severe environment controls to prevent excessive temperatures, humidity, etc. One extra person may not throw off the system, but 100 people with the same "altruistic" views as yours may.
It's ok to share what you have with a friend who has no money.
If you rent a DVD and decide to let your poor friend watch it with you, that's one thing. But if you put the same DVD online to make it freely available to anyone- that's piracy.
