Its just scare tactic, threats, and bullying to get their ways. Society created them, they grew out of our interest, we can stop them if we wanted to, like stop buying their music so they will just collapse on themself. When our freedom is too restricted, telling us what we can't do with it, this is where we draw the line. Either ignore them or get others involved to overthrow these bad guys, cause they are such a pain and think we exist only to make them as rich as possible and milk us for what we are like cows.
This is what we do for enjoyment and to share with others is just a nice thing to do. Why continue to pay for these crap that are just purely fake/scam, they are not really neccessary to our every day living. Do most people actually spend more time listening to music, and waching movies then anything else? That is a serious addiction problem and it does lead to being abused because they can't do without it, like crack, they need this to keep them entertained and the craving never stops. Basically, too much free time!!!
To all those folks who keeps buying junks, supporting these industry and are proud of it, good for you. Look like you are owned, but I will not folk over a penny because its just a waste of $$$ IMHO. People who share files encourage other to buy, what the? That's mess up. You either share or you buy, you can't be both. We are forgetting that $$$ are more important to us then those greedy corporation who get a lot more then what we can make in an hour and it has to stop sometime because its making everyone poorer. Why do most borrow money to buy car, homes, etc putting themselves in debt. You pretty much dig yourself a very deep hole here, and there's no way out is their? you only have yourself to blame because you are the sucker who couldn't figure them out.
