Regardless, if you want to stick with the "It's okay to steal something if you can't afford it" position, it's your right.
No I don't think that it's okay to steal (share, the word is share) something if you can't afford. But if there is a huge demand in getting the content through piracy then record labels and movie studios should try making their content more accessible rather than putting people in jail or fining 200,000.
My concern is the freedom of the web. If their business model doesn't work the way they want, then they should fix it rather than making people to use it.
Again I'm not pro-piracy, I'm pro-innovation (netflix, steam) and think that people should have their privacy. People share (not steal) content because they can't afford it, that's what I believe, and if you can tell just one story where a top studio or a record label went bankrupt or had some major losses because of piracy then I'd be happy to look at it.
But I don't think you will find much sympathy here.
I'm not here to find sympathy, sorry. Just spending my free time to help others by sharing my knowledge and points of view.
