Imagine being a car dealer and all your cars are still there but none is buying yours since they all just copied them and in essence you are stealing from the car dealer because you withheld him from making money from the car he rightfully owned. And in the end car sales would not make enough money to keep up the costs of fabricating cars. So in the end cars, and thus the car dealers, will be "extinct"

Piracy is'nt like that (kinda). Imagine you make a car, then you start selling it. You do good. Then one guy decides to copy the car and give it out for free. You still get money for the car but not that much. Then you decide to bitch about it and make stuff like DRM and always online.

By that logic, why don't we just print more money so we can pay our debt to China?
Oh, wait. When there's more of something, it's value goes down.
Piracy may not be theft but it's still bad.

No, its more like.

Imagine you built a car and nobody is buying it because someone else is giving your work away for free.

Piracy is like forgery. It devalues the thing copied.

I love this argument, just because it's so child like.

theft = bad
piracy ≠ theft
piracy ≠ bad
bad ≠ good
piracy = good

murder = bad
rape =/= murder

You're still getting something that costs money for free, without the person that owns the product's consent.
Piracy is stealing, no matter how much you sugar coat it with ******** lies.

That being said, I don't disagree with piracy, I do it all the time myself. It's just absolute ******** to me when people try and act like it's not thievery.

Because the american film industry challenged us to download a car. We are currently still working on it.

I bet you're also the guy who complains about DRM.

Piracy is essentially taking a product without paying for it.

Until I see companies going down because of ''Too much pirating'' I will not have the slightest moral concerns about it.

Consider this.

do all the movies you've downloaded not make millions of dollars for their producers, do the actors not get paid tremendous amounts of money for what most would call easy labor.

Do the musicians you've downloaded from not tourney, staying at the finest hotels with several bodyguards.

And do you think the oblivious cunts who protest against this post, not do this while they've got illegal music and movies worth at least a 1000$ fine.

So I'm just saying, before you start feeling bad about what you've done..

As a programmer I have always been on the fence about file sharing (because that's what it is... duplicating a file isn't on the same level as boarding a ship in high seas, killing it's passengers and raping their women.) But what I have learned is that it is unavoidable, good luck changing the moral beliefs of millions of people. DRM only hurts the people who PAID for said software while the free loaders are getting by completely unscathed.

Ok, but if I was a guy working for, lets say Porsche and someone just copied a new 911 I'd be pissed.
Why? Because amount spent on actually building a car is fairly minor. about 10k.
What really costs is research and development. Company employs hundreds of people, extremely high paid respected experts in their fields who cost company millions of dollars every year. Company also has to have state of the art labaratories and testing facilities and have to pay taxes and utilities and all the other running expenses.
New breaks, new glass, new design that offers less wind resistance, new materials implementation of new ideas. It all costs money.
And then someone copies our car and does not pay us for it. How is it fair? Someone takes product of millions of hours of work, and thinks he has a right for it and it isn't wrong.
But lets make a better internet analogy. Lets say there are companies that make cars for very little money, indie cars, who are not as pretty as ours but just as functional as ours and completely affordable. And on top of that, there are even companies that will give you free car, not as cool or fast as ours, but free if you drive it around with advertising logos on it.
But no, you think you have a right to product of someone else's work, and there is nothing wrong with it.
Sorry, you are an asshole.

If you actually have an argument better then "I deserve free **** " you priviledged pricks, please, let me hear them.

Technically it is theft. If you copied a car like it says in the picture, then you wouldn't have to buy the car, therefore reducing income to the car builders.
