Yep. I'm gonna be this guy. My last discussion on .wad's got closed due to forum rules on piracy, so I'm opening another thread. Just to be clear, I am NOT using this discussion to seek wad's. Nope, that was last thread. Now I'm going to start a debate cause the closing of my first, and maybe second to last thread on this website has got me wondering. When hacking a Wii, what qualifies as illegal? WADs are f'ing immoral as hell to Wii hackers because they're illegal, but roms, isos, and wbfs' are basically morally accepted. "Oh this is the USB loader, you can use it to play 'back ups' of wii games" Who are we fooling here? Lets say you do use the USB loader to play back ups of your Wii games cause you graduated with honors from your boyscout troop, lets say you do that, but realize that it can be used and is used for massive amounts of pirating. Isn't it slightly wrong to perpetuate the existence of this app when its popularly used to play pirated games? Furthermore lets go into hacking your Wii. What's the legal purpose of hacking your Wii other than to 1. Change the color of your Wii's background (Wohoo?) or 2. To eliminate the need for you to ever use your disc loader again. Well as exciting as both those things sound, many many users hack the Wii with the intention of playing pirated games. It's like buying a bong. Those who buy a bong but don't smoke out of it may be legitimately using it as a centerpiece on their coffee table, much like those who hack their Wii and only play legitimate back ups, but most people buy a bong to illegally smoke out of it. Which is why the law considers even owning the tool in which to do this illegal activity, the bong, as ILLEGAL. It's called paraphernalia, much like how a hacked wii is paraphernalia for playing pirated games. Now I know, it all can be legally justified. But why? When we KNOW it's a very popular tool for piracy, when we know its only legal use is for customization and minor convenience, why do we stand by and not blow the whistle on hacking wiis?
