    First of all, I don't sell pirated stuff. I used to 1-2 years ago, but then I got bored of it.

    The question is... is it wrong to sell pirated stuff?

    ----
    1. Yes its wrong - You got it for free. Why should other people pay for it, huh?

    2. No it isn't - I pay for my bandwidth, I pay for my CD-R's, and they pay for my services. I take the time to download the stuff, then burn it, and time is money.
    ----

    The other day some guy was offering pirated movies for like $5 each in class. I just wanted to know what you guys think.

    Usually it's alright to ahve them pay.
    Not for the actual software, music, or whatever else. but for the cd's, and my time.

    Never any more than 3 dollars though.

    I pirate all kinds of shit, but selling pirated media doesn't seem right.

    That's why I used to do it. It's like your charging them for the service, not for the actual stuff... as well as the blank media.

    Only when friends ask for things they want. It happens at our school all the time.

    C'mon Rip. I remember a discussion such as this in which you were heavily involved almost a year ago. That didn't end well, if I remember rightly

    You have to pay your internet connection anyway, it's not like you'll pay more simply because you're doing a favour for someone. You don't have to pay any money for the time you spend burning the item, nor did you pay for the burning software or the conversion software. Your PC, like your internet connection, is something you would have paid for regardless of whether you were going to burn stuff for people. This is a fixed cost.

    The only variable cost is the blank media. CDrs cost me about 5 pence each from EBuyer. If you can't stand that for a mate then ask him to supply his or her own. If it's not a friend that asks you to burn the stuff, either say no or make a new friend - you could even build up your karma bucks.


    Selling copyrighted stuff that you stole in the first place goes against the whole file sharing ethos and as such is never right.
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -
