It wouldn't be surprising if they win this, though.

my lil bro once downloaded the movie farcry and had to pay like 1,500 dollars
I have had 4 letters sent to my internet service provider before. Luckily no legal action was taken. I'm pretty sure you can do some serious hard time for pirating these days.

I am careful when I download though. I read all the comments and don't download something that hasn't been commented on yet. I'm very cautious. If I like the movie I always buy it. Same with the music I download. I always buy the physical copies of the albums I actually like.

The only reason I download movies is because I'm not paying $15-$20 to see a movie that could, and probabl would, suck. That money could be better spent at my local independent record store. Princeton Record Exchange. They sell used CDs for $1.99. You can't beat that. I have gotten some amazing albums for two bucks. My collection is getting grand.

Needless to say I miss Demonoid. You know you were safe with Demonoid, now it's dog eat dog. I don't know many other decently "safe" torrent sites.

Sorry for the rant.

I also do the hear first, buy later. Unfortunately that is frowned upon. I think that technically even if you own a record and have downloaded a torrent it's still theft somehow as well..

I could see one of the PirateBay owners representing himself in court, showing up with a briefcase with their logo on it and saying: "We are outraged by this behavior. People must understand what is right and wrong. Stealing material like this on the internet is a threat to economies worldwide" while trying not to burst out laughing.

TPB is so far ahead of the authorities in so many ways, it's become absurd.
