Oh, so that's a fact? Because piracy has had a huge impact on a lot of companies; if there was no piracy there'd be none of that copy protection bullshit in PC games everyone bitches about.

If someone needs to steal your product, perhaps they are a cheap ass or are desperate.
If thousands of people need to, your doing something wrong.

You can't download food or money so that desperation thing doesn't make any sense. They're just either not willing to pay for something since there is the option of Piracy. Or less likely they're cheap asses that just don't want to spend money on whatever it is they're pirating.
No body NEEDS to steal anything that is pirate-able.

I like how im being made out to be a asshole who promotes theft.

Copy Write protection in games, online pass codes, SOPA, etc etc... Have fucking nothing to do with stopping "evil doers who steal peoples products." What your choosing to ignorantly not understand is that these things arent put in place to protect original revenue but to gain more revenue then deserved.

SOPA isnt about stopping internet piracy, but being vague enough to be abused and destroy websites in the midst of doing so.

Do i think Photoshop should be illegally downloded. FUCK NO, but i think its just as corrupt to make something 500 dollars when its not worth that much. Its a dumb move for any company to make something cost that much when there are things out there that are just as good or even better but free.

If you buy photoshop, and you want to share it with everyone else i dont see anything wrong with it. But selling it is shady and wrong because you didnt make it, therefor its not yours to sell.

Sweet baby Jesus, just fucking drop it already.
If you want to discuss the errors of SOPA, fine, go ahead, do that, but don't also have a conversation about the piracy of Photoshop at the same time.
Pick one topic and go from there.

Digimon, 100%. Anything that involves things starting cute and having more and more machine guns grafted to its face as it evolves is golden.

Pokemon. But it can go either way. The only reason I say Pokemon is because I'd imagine Charizard would beat any digimon out there.

BONUS: Bearded Charizard.

Photoshop vs. piracy.
Okay.. I have been lurking around this topic, wondering if I should drop my two cents on the topic and decided no! But now I am mildly intoxicated and feel like sharing my view on the matter. Keep in mind that these arguments only apply to proffesional creative programs like the adobe suite or the likes of these.

(Sorry TOAS, please don't ban me, I'm on vacation and I am very bored!)

My point is simple. Adobe does NOT loose money on people downloading/stealing their software via pirating programs, because the people downloading the software would not have purchased the product in the first place. Why? Because they have no motivation to do so, as M-vero mentioned; there are plenty of other alternatives to doing so. Oh well why do people do it then? Simple, people aren't that creative when it comes to products. They just choose what ever their heroes use; adobe! My point is that piracy is good for adobe because if I had gotten used to say Gimp instead of Photoshop, then it is very likely that I would not switch and choose photoshop for my (hopefully) future professionally life. Boiled down, I think, that creative software producers such as adobe benefit very much from piracy, because when I am ready to start my professional life I will have no choise than to buy the products because these are the only tools I am experienced in useing. Also, by this time their products would be tax reductable. That makes quite a difference :P

This is a great point. I second this, and agree with everything you put. There really shouldn't be any argument to it.

Hmm I watched the anime a couple of times but I've stopped watching it regularly after Episode 20.
Nice pic two but it's mostly the Body I like about it.

I knew a new alien was gonna be coming out but i had no idea he was directing it. I was kinda expecting a botch after seeing predators. And i watched this not knowing it was alien, but by the end of it i was like "RIDLEY SCOTT, SPACE JOCKEY, THE BONE SHIP, HOLY MOTHER OF FUCK."
This trailer was honestly too fucking much for me, i am ecstatic as shit about this movie.

That is a horrible, horrible typo to make.

If you don't get it, google "feces".

On a side note, what's all this hum-bum about Prometheus? Why so excited?

Oh wait what???! That's great news! Let's hope they don't screw it up though.

On a less important note, I passed 1k post some days ago without noticing. Yay for personal profile ignorance.

Good grief, they do say you learn something new everyday, but I really didn't need to know or see that.

You should have double checked your typos then shouldn't you?

Understand that Prometheus is a prequel in the lore sense, not a story prequel.
It doesn't set up any stories or characters in the original film series, but more so an origin of how things came to be in the Alien universe, I believe.

Now that schools out for the holidays, it's probably gonna more like every hour or two (depending on the topic of discussion). Might also mean a temporary surge in crappy threads in the forum too, but we'll see.
