Not only it can be used for piracy but also to disseminate information. The piracy part would hurt the 1% that controls the tv episodes, movies , and music.

when the drug industry creates a drug that someone needs to stay alive or to aid in human suffering - its priced many times more then the cost to invent or to produce- we have to choose do i buy food or the drug i need to stay alive.- copy right and patents are against human rights- and need to be ignored- training web page http://tinyurl.com/7rvpv43

"Piracy hurts the 1%"

That is a brilliantly self-serving rationalization. Are you going to find a way to rationalize shoplifting as "protesting" also? Yay, protesting against rich people is fun! You can just steal stuff and call it "protesting"!

I don't condone theft of any description. I would never steal a car. If my friend however came home and said hey man, I just bought a new mercedes, do you want me to burn you a copy? Well, what would you say? I don't think theft should be promoted in any case, as it is a form of violence. I think we should promote the information dissemination aspect of this plan whilst simply ignoring the 'pirate' connotations.

3D printing might do that for you in the future.

You think that it's "theft" if you take something away from somebody. But you're happy to ignore the "piracy" part, which takes something away from the artist who recorded the music that you're stealing.

I write software. Should it be okay for anybody to make a copy of my work and use it without me getting compensated? Do you really think that a basket weaver should be entitled to be compensated for his work, but a writer or a software developer or a musician should not?

Actually there will be those that will compensate you. Not everyone is a pirate. Besides you hold one of the jobs that would be replaced by machines last as in you will keep you job until someone invents a machine to replace you for your job but that will be a long while though.

I never said it was ok! I asked what you would say! And I'll ask again... would you say no? If your friend could burn you a new car...? Btw, I'm a DJ.... so I understand completely....

It is more like coping than stealing. When you steal something the object is away from the owner and the owner is deprived of the possession of the object however when you copy you duplicate the object that they own thus they still possess the music or tv show while you have the duplicate.

It is just like saying that owning a photograph of mono lisa is bad as stealing it from the Louvre or an auction.

I do not support shoplifting. It is different from pirating as the intangible stuff are still on the metaphorical shelves.
