...to be honest, i pirate games

but only under certain circumstances:

A, i'm interested in the game, but currently don't have the cash. i pirate now, pay later
B, the game is currently rare or out of production AKA mostly older titles, while places like steam and GoG are getting ahold of these titles, and selling them for cheep
C, similar to A, i'm not sure if my compy could actually run a game, so i pirate it, give it a while. if it works, i buy it, if not, i use the money to buy a better compy

Entertainment industry like movie, music or games deserve every cents of their hard work. Their products indicated to those who actually have money and willing to give their money for these entertainment stuffs, not those people who won't pay but force the industry to let them enjoy too.

Bitch all you want, but entertainment is never free.

In my mind, if i pay the $20 to buy it on DVD/Blu-Ray, then I should be allowed to download it.

To me, it's the equivalent of backing up something you already own

A lot of poeple don't know this but its legal to download a movie if you own it.
What people get caught and tried about is torrenting, and only if they seed. Because distribution is really illegal.

But isn't pirating a movie still considered illegal since you're not technically paying for it, which is considered "stealing?"

If I were torrenting something right now and a cop walks through my door and sees me stopping it right before it seeds, would I not get arrested?

if it hasn't seeded 51% of the movie total (so if move is 1gb 501 mb) you are only recieving stolen goods. Which means its a minor missdemeanor and you would only get fined.

I think that the problem is not for the big film companies, but for those who want to start something new. Thanks to the piracy, it's harder to have the income some little companies need to grow.

3D costs a couple of dollars more though.

I pirate and watch cam videos for a few reasons:
1. I have a little brother, my mom wants to take him to the movie theater, he is an absolute nightmare to control, I'm doing my part by making him watch a crappy version at home instead of ruining another kid's movie night.
2. me and my Girlfriend don't have much money, we're college kids, when Insidious chapter 2 came out, we bought tickets and went to see it, but most movies we see adds for and don't feel the $20 is worth it (we know this year has had a LOT of failures) and a $10 pizza with a pirated movie is much better use of time and resources.
3. 90% of movies out now are solely made just for the money. (hurr durr all movies are made for money) by that I mean that they add 4 3-D effect scenes so they can charge you an extra $5 for the ticket, or they half-assed some plot points on a superhero movies or a movie that had some decent backstory they just didn't want to show love too (Hunger Games missed a LOT from the books... >. >) and those developers don't deserve the money.

These are all crap reasons. The bottom line is that you could just wait for the movie to come out on home video, yet your overblown sense of entitlement tells you that you deserve to see it right now and can't wait, so you steal it. And then you try to pathetically justify these actions by saying you're doing it for your brother or because you don't have money. Wait six freaking months and rent it from the Redbox for $1 you impatient jerk. No matter how hard you try, there is no reasonable justification for pirating movies. It's just selfishness and impatience on your part.

damn anon you old-fagging the hell out of my comments. you can try telling a little kid he has to wait for a movie, though we do buy the movie on DVD because i don't copy/distribute movies, ad i'm not always around to stream one.

Yeah, I'm the one who's wrong. Teaching him patience might be a benefit later in life...ya think? I have told children they have to wait...it's called 'being responsible'.

The only games I've ever pirated were ones that I lost the discs to that I wanted to play again.

Which is why I buy my **** on Steam now, I always ended up scratching my CD's anyway, now I just have a giant online library.

I pirate games to see if I like them. For example, many games on steam don't have a demo version. So I pirate the full version, play it, and when I like it, I buy it.

I'm currently in the process of entering into the entertainment industry as a special effects artist and every one of my teachers, and every one of my class mates, and every one I've ever met who works in the industry all pirate. Also every one I know who spends any significant amount of money on entertainment pirates half of it, the only people I've met who don't pirate stuff actually spend relatively little on Tv/videogames/books because their interests lay elsewhere such as fashion, food, sports, or outdoorsy things, the war on piracy is dead.

There are two sides in everything. In case of piracy the good thing is that entertainment is much more accessible to a common man and even the less known have a chance to be heard without millons of dollars put in marketing.

The bad side is that the less known still pretty much lose compared to the big money makers.

Honestly worth it if the theaters good enough, for example Local theater A has movies, overpriced food/drinks, an arcade and a clean building. Local theater B has all of the above plus amazing deco that celebrates movies over the past century and free seasonings for your popcorn. Also B tends to have less people of the annoying variety.

Because of inflation, *****.


But I do agree with you, piracy's not a big deal for the movie industry.
