Because there is still a finite amount of books, unless they start scanning in every page and then copy it.

Piracy allows for potentially infinite recreations of one bit of data, while books, though they may be free still have to be sold individually from a publisher, and even if it ends up at a library the publisher still profitted from it. True you could lend the book to an infinite amount of customers, but not at the same time, and it's not nearly as effecient as piracy.

Incedently i think calling it "piracy" is rather dumb. It's just theft, it's not like people intercept and raid data packets filled with music/films/etc.

Imagine you made something, and not getting paid for it.
Frustraiting, isn't it.
Well both sides have something right.
People made it and must be rewarded for it (payed).
But in this world we are living in not many people can afford programs such as Photoshop, or download a new OS.
Software and hardware must be cheaper, to that it will be available to the masses.
Long live socialisam!

Honestly I'm sick of all this pro piracy ******** , I do it all the time but don't go making myself out like I'm some sort of saint.

Get the **** over yourselves, you're exploiting a loophole in the system to swipe what amounts to pocket change from a multi-billion dollar industry, you can stop spewing this diarrhea all over the internet trying to justify it to the world, we honestly don't care.

Despite the fact that they are not even close to being similar principles do you have any idea how morally retarded it would be to deny people free information and learning?

Libraries still pay the ******* publishers you moron... JESUS it's hard to comprehend how ******* retarded you are.

... Everything that's "pirated" was also once originally bought and payed for. Same situation except that Internet sharing has much larger potential with thousands of people getting it in the same time

Piracy is killing the music industry.

The music industry is killing music.

Fair enough.

Because Libraries paid to get the books in the first place and if you don't return the book within a certain period of time you have to pay for it.

Probably because libraries are funded by the town they're in and music companies rely on profit.

Also, there are far more people that work for music companies/stores than libraries, so it's a bigger aspect of the economy.

Well, libraries are paid by taxes and fines... So the books get paid for?
Seriously this post is just stupid, sorry to say.

That's ******* retarded. When you take a book home from the library you don't install a copy into your bookshelf then return the original copy.

This is the stupidest 						*******					 comparison I've ever heard. I'm not particularly on either side, but a library is nothing like pirating songs. Unless you can walk into a library, grab a book off the shelf, and take it home with you forever for free, and still have the book be at the library for others to do the same thing.

Libraries buy books from the book companies, libraries are funded by the township.

I remember when they said the VHS would destroy video business, because then you could just tape the movie instead of buying it. They also had this add before the movie that said that is was illegal to tape it.


good old days
