This is not about being right or moral.
But if you pirate just accept you do and don't justify. It's useless to expend a wall text to defend it as it's "felony", you can say why you do it, but you can't use it to say it isn't wrong.
I'm pretty sure it's not a felony.. you can't even charge someone with a crime unless it's over $1,000 in an 180 day period.
Basically, a pirate would have to download 17 brand new games within 6 months for it to be considered a crime. Although actually, even then I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be a crime. Afterall, They aren't losing 60 dollars per sale. So, say the retail wholesale price of a game is $40. Now you'd have to donwload 25 PS360 games that were just recently released (since the price of other games have gone down.) for it to be a crime.
Not too likely.
This is the US where copyright infringement is it's strictist.
And you know... that's not even a felony. That's just for it to register as a crime.
