Piracy....

Oh for fucks sake:


--- Quote from: JArcane ---Piracy is a popular term amongst RIAA types for the implications of it, but it's not at all the correct term for intellectual property violations.

--- Quote from: Sosthenes ---"Software piracy" seems to be the common term, but it's about as bad as calling computer criminals "hackers". A pirate is a maritime robber. He takes stuff from other people by force. With copyright infringement, (most of the time) force isn't a factor. Comparing someone who swaps CDROM's with the latest games to murderers of the seven seas is utterly ridiculous, a ruse used by some companies and agencies to spread FUD.

--- Quote from: dictionary.com ---2. the unauthorized reproduction or use of a copyrighted book, recording, television program, patented invention, trademarked product, etc

So "pircay" does not apply to RPGs?

:wtfsign:

Levi Kornelsen:
People spend money to create games, and sell those games to recover the money and get paid for their time.

For someone that wants people to keep making games as releasing them electronically, refusing to respect that process is short-term, narrow-minded, tunnel-vision, moron-greedy, shit-headed infantile stupidity.

Semantics need not apply.

So basically you agree with me that piracy does apply to RPGs and is only something an asshat would do?
