    You realize you are stealing, don't you? Your taking money out of the hands of people who are trying to support their families and enjoying their hardwork without giving any compensation. If you really don't want to spend the money you should find an alternative to the program your downloading. Between all the free/open source software on the net you can get about any program type free of cost legally. And some of it is better then the stuff you would pay for. And your not taking money out of someone else's pocket.

    Look, I understand about wanting/needing software. I'm one of the biggest computer geeks around. I understand you can spend 2 to 4 times the ammount you paid for the computer on software to run it. But if your really downloading this stuff, you should be honest and pay for it. Yeah, I like Photoshop too. And I ponied up the money for it. If I can't pony up the money I know of a few free/Opensource programs I can use. No, they don't rock as much as photoshop does, but they do get the job done.

    Meh, these companies make enough money. Depending on the product and how much I want it, I will buy it if I have the money. Whats better than the actual thing.

    It seems like this is getting very popular where to people just download copyrighted things and sell it for profit.
    That I would not support.

    Seriously, you shouldn't admit to downloading copyrighted product so openly, I could be a undercover cop looking for people like you.

    The thing is, stealing is a bad habit to get into, and once you get used to it, it's a very hard habit to break...

    As a student, you maybe able to get away with it (as the lawyers can't squeeze blood from a stone), but the moment you try to go professional and try to make money from your works....

    (And then there's that stealing habit again. There are open bounties for reporting companies and professional individuals that use pirated software... All it takes is one disgruntled employee or former friend, and ...)

    Exactly why I don't want to buy it unless I really liked the company...

    I doubt you could find me :/ besides you know that I pirate and live in NC what else do you know? Lol...

    stealing is a bad habit to get into
    I've been stealing my whole life it isn't rather new... I've been poor most of my life and get the nice stuff I want by what I'm good at thieving.

    THE RULES!

    I'm not 100% sure, but I actually think you're legal here. It's the same thing as me downloading a CD, then buying the CD. It should be considered legal.

    In fact, I know a good number of people download music/anime for that reason. They basically "test" out or get a good feel of what they will potentially buy. Of course, there are those that just claim to do that to excuse themselves from piracy, and those who actually stick to their word and buy the things they had enjoyed after downloading.
