I was going to post some snippets, but instead I'll just link the thread:
Pirate software and media? The goverment might be grabbing you soon. - Fires of Heaven Guild Message Board
A whole ton of good info/responses/discussion in that thread, and well worth the read.
Definitely an interesting read.
I find it fascinating how the advent of technology and the internet is rapidly and dramatically changing our legal, ethical, political, and economic systems. Piracy is just one example of the disconnect between our values and our existing economic structures/business practices created by advances in information tech.
EDIT: hoooly shit that sounds pretentious
