I don't buy pirates I just download them for free... tho I was watching a programme about Stelios and his Easy Cinema idea - if there was one near me I'd definately pay 20p to see a film, wouldn't be worth waiting to download it!

Personally I think for people like us (students) it is acceptable. I mean to be honest CDs and DVDs are ridiculously expensive...

It is a matter of personal morality though.

Buying pirate copies is even worse than downloading, as you're basically funding criminals.

Support your local Odeon instead of Warner Bros or whatever. They have big cosy chairs, cheap food, its nearly always empty (sit where you like) and its cheaper tickets too!

I think people will come to realise that making money out of e.g. movie-rights was a temporary advantage. Just as technology conferred great wealth on big producers, so it will take it away again. It is a naive capitalist fantasy to think that the private tight of property is a law of nature.

So there...

It's even cheaper to make them. The only cost is 2 CDs and a bit of free software and a CD writer (which i'm assuming you have, if not then add that to the costs), internet time (boradband - you're already paying so there is no extra cost, dial-up don't even bother, it will take too long unless you have the patience.)
