    Awesome, XXXXX. I’m an ultrahardcore pirate. Blackbeard can suck it.

    Is it still piracy if you download TV shows that aren’t available here?

  3. pinchy

    someone tell me the difference between downloading a tv show from the interwebs and recording the same tv show using my PVR and cutting out the ads on my computer.

    bandwidth and the delay in getting the show on tv (inc if ever)

    edit: lewls. WOT says that the quiz site is unsafe.

    Im glad i visited that site and took the quiz! I didnt know buying pirated DVD’s in Thailand and bringing them home was illegal! or buying pirated DVD’s out of the back of someones car at the pub was illegal either. Its so easy to not understand the laws!

    Now that I understand them though, its off to the pub, and then Thailand.

    very lame campaign.

    so is it against the law to bring copied dvds back to australia from Thailand? Or does it just make you a pirate.

    cunts called me an accidental pirate. I do this shit on purpose!

    Balls to this, I’m going back to theft. Just not from videoezy though. The only thing their DVDs are good for is clay shooting. When you run out of clay.

    If you purchase as much stuff as you can reasonably afford on your income (and, indeed, reasonably consume in terms of watching/listening), then what’s the problem with downloading other stuff (which inevitably sits on your HD gathering e-dust until one night, you come home late and are drunk enough to watch it)?

    kind of how I look at it.

    I would be in the top 0.0001 percent of people who spent money on dvds, blu-rays, movie tickets ect. I have a bunch of stuff never watched, or would never pay for ever. So they already get enough or as much money from me as they can, I am how ever often swayed to buying stuff I would have never bought if I didn’t download it.

    I do think it’s a bit lame for people who just download every fucking thing they can instead of buying anything.

    Also many shows I download are on pay tv eventually, so I am still paying for them, even if I just watched it 2 months before. Like what’ll be the case with the new season of dexter.

    At least Glee is fast tracked by 10, no need to download that!

    When you see this in the cinemas, shout “Avast me hearties.” or similarly piratey slogans, until the ad is gone.
