    I pirated like 6 wii games from the time I got my modchip. and like 20 DS games. I am kind of worried that I might get caught by the whoever. I live in the USA so it is illegal to mod the Wii. What are the chances of getting in trouble? I only pirate because MOST Wii games are shit and not worth the money. Is there any software I can download that will protect me either? I just straight up download the games....

    Hey homeboy... don't worry I have been doing it since I was 12 years old... Over 25 years... never got arrested for piracy... now hacking business networks....thats another story.

    * Now I just use pirated software and I do not hack business networks... (had to make that a little more clear)

    If you don't want to be caught, don't post: "hello i'm a pirate" in a forum. Just a tip.

    The correct answer was: "this isn't my account".

    i cant understand if you are "always worried" get rid of homebrew etc and don't do it.....simple?
    Why keep homebrew when your worried all the time, it's not good for you, or do you like the worry feeling? if so keep it on!

    No itsn't illegal mod your Wii, Nintendo say it's illegal, but the country laws allows you mod your electronics. Itsn't illegal make backup copies of your games, it's illegal make copies of games that you don't own.

    Nintendo try a turnaround saying that ''is not necesary make backups, thereof people making backups are unjustified, thereof if you make backups you probably don't own the game, because it's not necessary make one''

    You should also worry about porn.
    The FBI is watching you masturbate after all.

    No I only burn games, I don't care about the homebrew, it's dumb...I don't want to get into that IOS cIOS, whatever....I like to keep it simple, burn and then play.

    I don't mean like "worry" I just think what would happen if I get caught? big trouble. After all, the US enforces so many laws and the government just wants to control everyones lives.....

    Pirating is wrong yes....But who's watching? so stop worrying...majority of the people here are super pirates.... I'm a modded pirate too, am i worried? AM I NELLY, would i ever worry?...NO
    Bigger things to worry about than some homy catching me/you download games, burning them and playing them and running piracy on the wii...

    Only time I've been warned is using my own modified pirate radio, had a range of about 1000 yards, not too bad to be honest..
    [​IMG] those were the days, only 5 years ago when i was 14-15 like hehe school days...
