I'm confused what is the conection between pirated DVD's and terrorism?
About the pirated DVD's, from an ecenomical view it could be considerd wrong.
But it dosn,t realy hurt people, most people in the movie industrie have a pretty good salery aspecialy producers, actors, directers, and investers.
I dont think the have anything to complane about there making milions of dollars evry year.
And the same thing go,s for the musci indusdrie!
I don,t really now how it is in the Anime indusdrie so i wont pas judgment on that.
The only DVD,s i got are The Matrix collection witch i got legaly at a shop, The rest of the entertainment i watch and listen is al an the Internet.
I'm against buying pirated copies, for many of the reasons already mentioned above. I'm really into the movie industry and I support it by buying good quality non-pirated copies of movies and hire them. I've worked in a Video Store for a while. If everyone was buying pirated copies or downloading from the net, I would have been out of a job.
Yeah sure, those people in the Film industry will have good pays, but I certainly don't, and when I was working in the video store it was the same, basically if people didn't come in, I wouldn't have had a pay, and the owners wouldn't have a store. Could you imagine if more people downloaded from the net, or brought pirated copies, instead of coming into a video store? or instead of going and buying it in a DVD store? It could be a big loss of income for those people. I guess we are lucky that the majority of people aren't doing it.
And as for terrisom, I think if the majority of people knew where the money was going, they wouldn't buy it.
It is simply called the internet. Whether or not Pirated DVDs fund terrorism or not, the fact should be known that while you are out buying your 8 movies for $2.50, a single descent website could give you 1000 titles free of charge or for pennies a day. If terrorists havn't figured that out, who gives a crap. Sooner or later they are gonna run out of money if they keep peddlin those cheap low quality bootlegs.
If you want cheap, why not go for free?!?!?
I suppose if you think like that then nothing you do matters at all because someone else is always gonna be doing wrong. If you couldn't stop 10 terrorists then why stop one eh? I'm not getting all holyer-then-thou on you it's just an example but do you see my point?
There is a chance of funding Terrorism OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Even if they weren't, where was your hesitation with the 1000 other possibilites of funding the evil? A drug addict? Being a criminal? Sinning? Having others lose money?
I find it pretty strange that you worry so much about a terrorist of Fox News kind and not the local downtown terrorist that is pushin that garbage. These people are smart and not only will terrorists never die, but illegal isn't the only way to fund them. Ever hear of the Mafia? Yakuza? Gangs?
It is illegal to buy pirated DVDs - Pirates achieved mass amounts of treasure by what? Stealing. You are only contributing to that cause. Welcome to being a criminal. Hypocrtitical non-sense.
Ignorance isn't an excuse. If you think it is, who cares. Handcuffs feel the same Universally. Makes me laugh - I won't do something illegal because the people pulling the strings are bad guys. I just want to pay good old Jim trying to support his Crack addiction.
First Para- I don't know that the guy selling these things isn't just doing so to support his family, do you?
Second Para- Although 1000 is a bit exaggerated, Being a criminal? I'm here in the first place dodging mortars, doing patrols living in a place where everyone outside my compound hates me and would kill me the first chance they got for just the enjoyment-Who's the criminal here? Sinning? Of all the things being done in the world, I'm sure god can forgive a few dvd's. Losing money: I don't think Tom Cruise is hurting for the 5 cents he missed out on from me buying them. Drug addict: I suppose that is possible, though I have yet to hear about any kind of drug situation over here.
Fourth Para- Ignorance of what really? I won't do something illegal because the people pulling the strings are the bad guys..I don't get it...ALSO: I don't buy pirated dvd's in the states, why would I, I can actually use my check card there..
