But what if I had a couple of friends over and showed them the same DVD? Everyone has done this. Are we all pirates?
What about 10 friends? 100? is there a limit?
I get your point though, I personally have no qualms with sharing some media that in the end only hurts some giant faceless conglomerate megacompany although I dont personally pirate stuff, shockingly enough. With me, the line is drawn when you start pirating stuff from small businesses. You're actually hurting someone's ability to earn a living then.

Unless you're a pirate from One Piece. The definition of a pirate in One Piece is having a lot of nakama.
I totally agree. I always support quality products from small businesses and large companies for that matter. But I have been ripped off so many times by bad games/movies that are not even worth a rental fee. So I really don't see the problem with trying something out for free first. Even with pirates at the end of the day if the product is good, the developer will make boatloads of money.
I agree games today do not come cheap maybe thats why they have Demo's so we can make our mind up b4 we buy,i personally use You Tube t watch a small shot of a game,and i also know that all games do not have Demo's
At the end of the day Piracy is illegal and if you break the Law and get caught then you and me deserve the punishment, regardles of the reasons why,how many of us have used Freeware,and many others and downloaded music and movies,we all know that music and movies are overpriced and even thats no excuse.
For me its the big corporations thats on the backs of the politicians putting pressure on them, in return you will get big Bucks for your party's support!! for me thats legal corruption,and its here to stay.
