If piracy isn't justified economically, so what?

So I don't know why I'm still surprised that people from rich countries pirate software and media.

As a guy from an eastern europe country, I was told all my life that we are still poor because of the immorality and disrespect for the laws, and that we needed to replace these traits for better ones like these from western EU, US and Japan.

Even in the school we were told that rich countries are rich thanks to the respect for Intelectual Property that gives incentive to the people.

But when I earned some money and traveled I don't understood why would the americans, canadians, english and swedish pirate all that shit if to them the products are cheaper than there on my country.

So what's your motivation?

Pirated games also gave me some nasty viruses.

People underestimate russian trojans in recently pirated games. "False positive" they scream, but they don't really have base those claims on anything but word of mouth. If it just so happened not to be a false positive, they wouldn't know better.

"I didn't notice anything wrong" they insist, unaware that they're part of 5 different botnets.

Humans have a RIGHT to copy share. Not steal, not, horde, but copy and share.

Simple. America and Canada are great because of the personal freedom to do such things. A VPN enables a lot of these freedoms.

Lolwhat.

>>51599461
They pirate because they can and it is very easy. That is about as simple an explanation you'll get.

You also are making the assumption that everyone in rich countries are well off. USA is full of people that work a full time job that pays so little that they cant even live on their own and also full of people that have degrees in fields that arent hiring or have a well paying job that is offset by crippling student loan debts. Most people are only one emergency away from declaring bankruptcy here.

American and Canada are christian nations.

They were funded under it's moral lessons if I can remember.

Piracy exists because people want free shit. That's it.

So long as pirates try not to "justify" them getting free shit, I'm alright. If one just accepts they're being dicks for taking things freely, that's all that's needed.

"Why buy something if I can get it for free?"

>dicks
Morality, maybe?
Or fear of the law... Who knows?

troof.

If you get fined for pirating you deserve to get fined.

Don't be stupid. If you could steal anything without ever getting caught, would you? If you said no, then you're a pussy.

and nobody ever questioned this? how retarded are you third world europeans?

>people from rich countries pirate

Logical fallacy. Not everyone from a 1st world country is rich. In fact the majority are living at or below poverty level, at least in the USA this is true.

>>51600638

>dicks
Being a dick anonymously is tremendously easy, and in this case it's also beneficial.

>fear of the law
As a pirate, you're just a drop in the ocean. The changes of you getting in trouble, even a little bit, are negligible.
>>
>>51599677

I wish that was the current state of the U.S.A. but it isn't.
>>
>>51600761
Where does he say everyone is rich in a 1st world country you fucktard. Go suck a dick you stupid fuck. Fuck you
>>
>>51600761
The standard of poverty in the U.S. is quite high compared to poverty in the developing world. I wouldn't call anyone that can afford Internet and cell service on top of utilities actually poor.

Yep.
