    Since people are obviously stupid and think I'm asking if piracy is ok I feel the need to correct them. I KNOW ITS NOT OK. STOP TRYING TO CORRECT ME. I just want to know if there are people out there that for some fucked up reason think that piracy is NOT piracy.

    ---------- original Content below----------
    I am curious as to what others think of this.

    Does anybody consider legit CIA's to not be piracy?

    Legit CIA's are CIA files that Nintendo has signed themselves that can be used on a system without CFW.

    We have to use CFW to play games that are "Not signed".

    I just want to know people's opinions over the course of the next 72 hours.

    Thanks for your time!

    P.S. I'm a pirate and this does not bother me that I am such.

    Gambia, The
    Of course, they don't belong to you. Whether you have to patch signatures or simply run the game isn't relevant in this case.

    Why they wouldn't be? You didn't pay for them. You were not supposed to have them.

    If you didn't pay for them, then it doesn't matter if they're signed or not.

    Did you pay to download the legit CIA?

    Answer: No.
    Conclusion: It's piracy.

    Um, of course it is. Did you mean to phrase this differently cause I don't really see how you could look at it any other way?

    I'm not saying that it's not piracy. I just put some info for people that for whatever reason does not know what a legit CIA is.

    I'm a pirate. I ain't afraid to admit it and I sing losing any sleep over it. I just wanted to know if there were people that "wrongfully believed" that it's not piracy.

    Yes, legit CIAs are still classed as copyrighted, therefore, piracy...

    Although your own legit homebrew CIAs wouldn't be copyrighted, but you'd have to time travel way into the future to make them. :P

    Because they believe piracy is wrong, and don't want to believe that what they're doing is piracy.

    Or maybe they're just stupid.

    Nintendo doesn't make Legit CIA's "so whoever buys our systems can pirate our games easily".

    There signed with a universal signature so they don't have to be "reconfigured" for each bundle/preinstalled systems.
