Comment Re:Welp, back to pirating (Score 1) 212

I think piracy is theft. It's not the content that's being stolen, it's the forgone revenue that is being stolen.

I certainly am no fan of the current copyright enforcement regime, but I do think that content creators and owners should be able to control the terms by which their works can be obtained. The market will sort out those who over-charge, but piracy distorts the market and hurts all content-creators.

Yeah, I was shocked by the level of religiosity in parts of the US. I was at a technical conference in Phoenix a few years ago and sitting down to lunch with a bunch of people. I was just about to tuck in when they all started to say grace.

I'm thinking, WTF? Is it 1875 or something? That's so quaint!

I just stayed silent.
