>>121068303 It would sell less. I torrent all my shit, but if I like something, I buy it. People bitching about nyaa is like bitching about your book being in a library. I'll read it either way, but it I like it, I'll buy myself a copy. Fuck him.
>>121068648 Are you joking? I didn't open the thumbnail, I assumed it sold 177 PHYSICAL copies. Why the fuck would anyone pay for a goddamn image file that can be replicated infinitely at no cost? At least with a book you're actually buying a product. What a fucking whiny dickhead
>>121068711 >Why the fuck would anyone pay for non-physical things? >Why the fuck would they pay a doctor or engineer money at all? He is not producing anything, he is just doing mental labor which can be replicated infinitely at no cost
>>121068778 You can only use software on computers, though. If hentai manga was ONLY digital, then it would be justified. You could just buy the actual fucking book, because you don't need to plug it into a computer to use it. >>121068870 Please continue paying for digital shit, by all means. How stupid are you that you completely ignored what I said and assumed I was claiming that anyone can be a doctor with no training or effort?
>>121068535 Anon, it's nice that you buy things you like, but I think it's safe to assume that you are in a tiny minority. The vast majority of people who pirate things probably almost never end up buying those things afterward.
I'm not saying everyone should stop torrenting, but that's a pretty flimsy defense.
>>121068870 >Why the fuck would they pay a doctor or engineer money at all? What is it with /a/ and it's general ability to make really shitty non-sequitor analogies. Is it the autism? Somehow anons seem to make all the worst analogies.
>>121069031 Who cares? People cant afford to pay for all their entertainment. I've probably read at least a thousand doujin. If you assume $15 each that would be $15,000 just to masturbate and I would need to keep spending more every year.
>>121069031 >The vast majority of people who pirate things probably almost never end up buying those things afterward. And there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. If someone bought the book and then loaned it to ten friends, it'd be the same thing. The only thing that comes out of torrenting is global/broader interest. >>121069063 You've obviously never checked to see how much H-manga costs, it's cheap as fuck. You're not a thief for downloading scans, you're a thief if you steal the artist's computer, or the physical book. You're saying you're a thief for reading a book at the library instead of buying an e-book. People still have to buy the books to make scans, you idiot. That's a sale, and it opens the possibility to many more people buying the book after they've read it. And if they don't, who cares? They obviously weren't going to buy it anyway.
>>121069130 >People cant afford to pay for all their entertainment They absolutely can, do, and have. Mass pirating is a modern phenomenon that many don't partake in. You're choosing to live beyond your means because it's convenient.
I'm not saying to stop pirating -- I do it too, and have no intention of stopping -- but stealing is stealing. Don't delude yourself into thinking that what you're doing isn't wrong.
>>121069357 No they cant fucktard. If I had to pay for all the anime/video games/porn I've pirated I would probably be down a million dollars. That's around the lifetime earnings of the average person (not quite but not that far off either). Give it another 20 years and I will have pirated 3 million dollars worth of material.
They pretty much knows most faggot on internet would put it on any torrent site so they rather put it on high price and let people who actually want to contribute buy directly from them or buy a high price digital copy.
>>121069063 Also, when did I claim that this shit comes out of thin air? Your autism is causing you to see things that haven't been said. >>121069357 >Mass pirating is a modern phenomenon that many don't partake in That's just not true at all. Piracy is not stealing. If I borrowed a DVD, is that stealing because I didn't buy my own copy? The biggest thing missing from the piracy debate is common sense. I don't walk into a store and steal a disc, I pay for it.
As for you saying people can afford what they pirate, that's also not true. Without piracy, I literally would have never been able to watch anime. If everyone had millions to blow on entertainment, piracy wouldn't be seen as "stealing". Do you buy every single DVD you want to watch, or do you borrow it from a friend or rent it somewhere first? It's the same argument.
I actually used to buy stuff from dlsite, but they started putting drm on everything. Occasionally, I'll still buy a few thing unavailable anywhere else, but now I make sure to share after bypassing their drm.
>>121069254 >You've obviously never checked to see how much H-manga costs
You have absolutely no idea what the fuck you are talking about. H-manga is A LOT more expensive than regular manga plus you have the import problem too.
> You're not a thief for downloading scans
Yes you legally are. If you are not a thief for stealing someone's non-physical work in your own retarded world then that's fine, but in the real world you are a fucking thief.
>You're saying you're a thief for reading a book at the library instead of buying an e-book.
You are putting words in my mouth, of course you have to because you have no arguments outside of shit you pull out of your ass. Lending=/=pirating. You are legally allowed to lend something from the library. They have to pay a fucking fee to the content creators to be allowed to lend out the books.
>People still have to buy the books to make scans, you idiot.
Yeah, one person buying the book, scanning it and a million other people just pirating his upload sure is a very solid financial system, right? How can you be that fucking deluded from reality and call anyone an idiot you blatant moron?
>That's a sale, and it opens the possibility to many more people buying the book after they've read it. And if they don't, who cares? They obviously weren't going to buy it anyway.
Yeah, of course. "I would not have bought it anyways". It's not like people pirate shit all the time to safe money, right? It's not like they were looking forward to X game/anime/movie and pirate it as soon as they can even though they were completely willing to buy it, right?
God I just don't understand how people can be that fucking ignorant in their perception of reality. "People would not have bought it anyways" "If one person buys it and shares it with everyone else for free than that's a sale!" "Its not stealing when you don't remove anything, 100% of the people pirating the content is a solid financial system!".
