XII360 Posted September 12, 2018 Share Posted September 12, 2018 but yea, what is everyone's thoughts on piracy/pirates ?, (be it song, games, anime, software, etc) for me, personally, i dont mind piracy, i feel its a need sometimes too, as a "demo" of sorts for people who dont know the brand, or dont have the money to "buy the item" (since not everyone has money to get everything, i know so from experience) though this may hurt the developer/creator, in my PoV, it also helps them, as the aformentioned pirate, <if he has any soul> liked the product. then he would stop pirating it, after a while, and buy it (assuming its a game, its a one-time deal, aside from DLC's, assuming its software, well it will depend on how much it cost's per month, e.g kaspersky or VPN express stuff, and it may also depend on the pirates budget, some pirates pirate, due to not having the money to get the service, but also want to use them) and if the said individual, does not have the money to buy the brand, at the very least, the individual can help via advertising it, (by spreading the word of the brand name, assuming he does not give the pirated version away, and tells others to support the developer, which can help the developer/creator in a way) oh and, i've pirated before (incase it was not obvious), one example is my VN's, i tend to download them first, and see if its good and worth the money if it is, then ill think about throwing some money in it, assuming my budget isn't tight (which 90% of the time is, students dont get allot of cash <.>) TLDR version; i dont mind piracy, it can hurt developers, but it can also be a free advertisement, in a way for them too, pretty much the stuff i bolded is the tldr >.> but what about you ?!, what are your thoughts on pirates/piracy ?! do you feel disgusted on pirates ?, do you think that the developers/creators lose more than gain, if their brand is pirated ?, have you ever pirated anything ?! lets have a discussion below ~ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
