    I know this might get closed but I wanna take an annonymous poll of all the pirates on here.

    Since I've seen a couple... obviously you pirates don't have to come out of closet. But just wanna see the ratio.

    Please don't lie.

    I'm legit, don't any reason not to be unless you're just lazy and don't want to pay for stuff.

    Alot of people don't want to pay $800 for software. There's also the case of downloading movies they wouldn't pay to see in the first place. Or maybe the movie isn't out on DVD but it's out of theaters, what are you to do?. Anyway, in a good number of cases; nobody is losing any money.

    Yeah i am on a crappy P4 Server i have at home. Anyway back on topic.

    I myself find doing this but only when i really cannot get the product. Example i cant buy music from my country from the US because they do not offer it. Just my 2 cents

    If I download something and like it, Ill buy it. Though its rare Ill actually download something. If I dont like something (I can tell very early in the process) then Ill uninstall and delete it. I dont download music unless its already free/supposed to be downloaded (a lot of the music I listen to isnt sold in stores... anywhere, that I can find (vinyl doesnt count, even though I have turntables and a mixer)). Movies I dont care much for unless Ive already paid money to see it in the theatre or something.

    Thats not so bad is it? :p I mean, if I dont like it Id just exchange it for something else anyways, and if I do like it Id buy it sooo I dont see a huge problem with it...

    since almost everybody is (in a way) in to piracy..maybe the question is, how much of your stuff isnt legit..
