Very easily, it's very telling of a persons personality if they're a theif and proud of it.

Yes, but despite the same mod that pirates also happen to be a great guy (if we are thinking about the same pirating mod), so where's that theory lead you?

I'm not a big pirate myself. The only thing I download are Japanese PS2 and PSP games. Its not something that I'd flaunt, but I guess I'm 'proud' to play K-ON and Tales of Versus. I guess you can hate on me too.

So says you, you're obviously going to stick up for your friend so your word means zilch. Someone that admits to stealing all their games quite proudly isn't a "nice guy" in my book.

Even in his case, I'd like you to find another alternative. This is all pretty ridiculous and I'm not going to try and continue it further, but you definitely brought up zexen before anyone did. >_>

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.

But but but You don't understand!  When I pirate games its ok!  Don't you see how I benefit and how it isn't wrong when I do it?  Stop being selfish and think about me!  Caring is sharing!  Especially when I don't share!

Copyright infringement on the level of people who download video games isn't actually a felony.

Well pirates aren't taking anything away from anyone so I guess thats why they feel it's different

"on the level of people who download video games" was the operative phrase, there.

More, the guy was brought to court on civil charges, because copyright infringement on the level of people who download video games is a civil matter.

The words I use have particular meanings.

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.
