Multimedia, AV ABC.net.au has published an article titled "The Case for Piracy". The writer shows how copyright has been hijacked by corporations and that publishers are their own worst enemies. "One of the main reasons we all have anti-piracy slogans embedded in our brains is because the music industry chose to try and protect its existing market and revenue streams at all costs and marginalise and vilify those who didn't want to conform to the harsh new rules being set."

piracy is a windows problem I think, except for some music once in a while, I don't need to download anything illegally. I got most things I need to do useful things already installed with my linux, and basically anything else is just an aptitude away.

I enjoy being able to "aptitdude install pdftk" e.g. or bashloop imagemagick tools, gs or other wonderful tools ;) So powerful and usually better than any pro version of anything.
