Apparenlty I have been “pnwed”. Although I can’t see what website because I have to subscribe. Yeah, like I’m going to give them my email, verify account through it, and unknowingly agree to spam to that address.

Serves them right even if you hate Sony or Xbox pay for software so it will make it less expensive.

Pirates[/I] are the biggest buyers. Period.

And the biggest out sources of software as well. Pirates don’t buy so unless one of them will come forward and identify themselves to explain how they pirate what they buy that would be different.

Hmmm… It’ll be interesting to see if there’s any retaliation.

In 2011 the german GfK (http://www.gfk.com/about-gfk/about-gfk/) made a study that states users of illegal streaming portals spend more money on DVDs/Blu-rays and going to the movies than those not using those portals.

Similar to Merrill’s findings i’ve linked above:

Merrill profiled the file sharing behaviour of people who used Limewire against the top iTunes sales and the biggest iTunes buyers were the same as the highest sharing “thieves” on Limewire.

Of course not, but saying the opposite doesn’t do justice to all “pirates”.
There are so many studies without real proof whether piracy is ultimately good or bad for the content industry’s profits.

But a former EMI manager and the world’s number five market research institution deeply connected with the content industry aren’t the worst advocates.

Copyright infringement=“piracy”=“theft”=“freeloading”=“Lost profits”=“OMG! This is terrible! The sky is falling!”. That’s exactly what the industry wants everyone to think. However, because there are so many studies that show this claim to be untrue, I can’t help but doubt the validity of this thinking. Even if it is true, these copyright-trolling companies deserve to pay for the bad things they’ve done to society. If they went out of business, and were replaced by more ethical companies, I would not lament their loss.
