the point is that we know its theft but don't care. like drug use, its a personal choice because the laws are outdated/inadequate/stupid/whatever.

Great stuff - the good old communist/socialist mantra coming to the fore - "whats mine is mine and whats yours is mine" eh?

Must keep that in mind next time I'm placed in a position where renumeration is demanded for some good or service I require - " nah - not paying ya today - ye're too expensive but Im still keeping the goods - I dont agree with this bolloxology about having to pay for things.

Communist! Socialist! Thanks for pigeonholing me you feckin' fascist. There is nothing idealogical about being discerning with my money and playing the percentages in choosing to break a law that doesn't matter a fig to me. Strange that it makes me a commie. There are a lot of commies about nowadays though by your criterion.

Exactly.

Thanks bit of Jesus these kind of anti-copying lads weren't around when Lasagne and Tirmisu were thrown together by the Italians otherwise they'd have imposed a licence on the copying of that too.

Would you or have you donated money to free bands - amateurs, garage bands and stuff like that? There is a thriving industry in that too if you're into it and most of it is free.

And Oh yeah ...
