Is the pirate of today tougher than pirates from hundreds of years ago?

Imagine the life from

- a Kilikien in the last century before Christ
- a Viking in the 8th century
- a Wokou in the 13th century
- a "Pirate" in the 16th century

NO - Today's pirates are small fags in comparison.

Guess you've never gotten a copyright notice for torrenting. I've gotten two.
You see, here in Mexico, copyright laws can only really punish you if you take monetary gain from it, or if you contribute to it.
For example:
If I torrent a movie from some torrent tracker, and I don't benefit economically, I'm not doing illegal.
If however, I decide to put up a site that offers, let's say, movies in direct download, I am violating the law.
However, if I, say, have a site with magnet links, I'm not actually hosting any copyrighted content, so it's not really illegal.
If I were to partially or completely provide raw materials for the production of devices that produce or reproduce copyrighted works then I would be violating the law.
Fun fact: Making software (with commercial purposes) to bypass a computer program's built in security measures is illegal.
In other words, if you torrent in Mexico and don't make any money from it, you're fine.
Even if you distribute copyrighted works in Mexico, if you don't make money from it, you're fine.
Mexican copyright law is very lax. Hopefully it remains that way.
By the way, this is not legal advice and shouldn't be taken as such. I am a user on the internet doing a 15 minute Google search about my country's copyright laws, not a lawyer.
Also, if you're interested, here's the full legal document:

The relevant articles are 424-429. It's in Spanish, but that should be obvious.
