    Hello Tempers and lurkers!


    My school has asked me to make a research paper on a topic of choice, and part of that is to do primary research.
    The topic I had decided to do is about the punishment of piracy. Therefore, I'm collecting information on exactly what kind of punishments/fines are appropriate for common piracy on a scale as global as possible.

    GBAtemp happens to be one of the better places to do this, with a big userbase over many countries.

    The information will only be shared with my teacher and no one else. I can guarantee this.
    Information collected includes your age, gender and location.


    To start the survey, please click here.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​

    Again, I'd like to thank you all for your cooperation and support. It would be very kind of you to also pass on the link to your friends in order to have bigger coverage on the survey (though you are under no obligation to do this.)

    Peace,

    Ace

    It appears I have done the mistake of using a payed service that's trying to fool me for money.

    just took it. really i think it should be the cost of the product pirated. its that simple, nothing more was lost and needs to be recovered than that. asking for more is allowing the justice system to legally steal from someone.

    That's just the same thing I put myself, lol. Personally I doubt pirating one song cost a company 250,000$ in profit...if it does, then I take back that statement.

    Done, personally I think it should be about twice the RRP of the product.

    Crap.

    It appears that to see the results after you've surveyed over 50 people, you have to pay :glare:
    Guess I'll just have to do that now :lol: Thanks for all the help!

    I guess they take in account different element to say they lost that many money for only one pirated song.

    They take the fact that you re-distribute it.
    If you download it (not on P2P), and don't share it, then paying the product price is the correct punishment as you just buy what you own to re-equilibrate the balance.

    If you are implicated in the uploading process, you make the company a bigger possible loss (think about Kongnutz uploading New Super Mario, Nintendo decided that it has been downloaded 1 million of time for free after only 1 upload).

    Catching only one uploader instead of many downloaders is maybe easier, then they make them pay for the supposed loss.


    But I think each pirated arts should be treated differently.
    On a more specific fact:

    a little long

    Appears some people didn't quite get the format:

    Answer the two last questions with JUST numbers. It'll make compilation much easier without having me sift through the results for hours. :lol:

    I thought the exact same thing as @Cyan did. Since getting a pirated copy of any piece of media means to have not bought it but still have a copy of that media, that'd mean that using cassettes to record of the air or using a digital recorder would also be illegal because you're getting a copy of paid media without paying.

    *is taking survey*

    That's not cool, you shouldn't manipulate the outcome of the poll. Everybody has one vote and that should be respected.
