I would, unless someone moderates me, which anyone is entitled to as this is as foggy as it gets, like to emphasize a tad on this.
I am not in any way unique, we're in the thousands using the illegal sites this way. We do buy, we are simply not taking any ones word for anything... We explore, research, buy, gain knowledge. I would not have the faintest idea, but I reckon it is like this for movies as well.
You know, I take pride in my music collection and in all due respect, it is quite impressive for a private sphere. Still, I am proud of most any release I own as they are good and have earned their way here.
I mentioned they closed down What.CD. Now that was more than one million unique releases, 99.99% perfect flacs ripped from original CDs by true idiots like me. This never was about money, it was all about interest. Now, can we sue them? (unless they secured the archive, we really should. It does not work that way in Norway though as any case have to have a reason apart from 'gain', too familiar in the U.S. I guess).
They did manage to set me back by some years with this move, my buyins that is, and I somehow hate to battle for my right to spend money. After all, they are earned the hard way, by labour...
Your average Guybrush Threepwood (mighty pirate) and his gold, right here. Censored censored censored.
Whoa, lets keep it rated PG in here guys!
