Piracy Lies!

More lies about piracy are being peddled by the industry. Lets address a few:-

Why should we fight piracy?

  • Piracy/counterfeiting is illegal and punishable by fines and jail sentences. - Especially now that the lobbying of governements has got into full swing; you can put put away for longer for pirating a game than beating someone up.
  • Counterfeited/pirated games are often mixed with obscene or pornographic material. Where? And why haven't mine?
  • Consumers have no recourse under law for faulty pirated games, which can damage hardware. True, they can damage your hardware if you drop a box of them on your PC.
  • Local and national jobs are lost as a result of pirate operations.
  • Proven links exist between piracy and organised crime, including drugs and pornography. Yes; they are both on their web page.
