    Well like on saturday, there was a newsreport of a girl getting caught downloading free music, and is now having to pay a 20,000 fine.... I still go with my statement of BS!!! , now all my friends are like woah pircacy i dont want to get fined...
    Anyone want to share their opinions on the matter?
    I still think its BS because why didn't they do this before? they had this technology a decade ago, and why have i only heard about a few poeple getting caught? If you ask me its just the media trying to scare poeple from doing piracy......

    Getting caught is for the filesharers and the careless fools.

    If piracy would kill the movie/gaming/movieindustry, it should've done so 10 years ago.

    And it looks alive and kicking to me right now, so....

    Bad example ... the Atlantic Ocean has been fished so heavily, that supplies of many fish, especially cod, are becoming non-existent ...

    Nope, i gotta firewall, doubt "regular" people can hack into it and snitch on me. Besides, its practically impossible to get caught unless u go around Manhattan with a sign "I PIRATE VIDEO GAMES AND MOVIES LOLOLOLOL". That person will be caught for Public Intoxication.

    I guess a little, but I don't give it much thought.

    I just got an account there, but I probably won't download from there. For some reason, you can download some torrents without registering and that defeats the whole point.
