Do you have pirated CDs in your private collections?If you do, -WHY are they there?-WHAT are they about?-HOW LONG will you keep them?-do you really NEED them?

I have a copy of YellowBeard that I bought from eBay for my husband. We didn't know that it was pirated until we tried to watch it, the picture was bad, the timing of the sound was wrong. We just got rid of it. Reporting it was too big of a hassel (when they mentioned the FBI, my husband said to just drop it, so I did...in the trash!), I did let eBay know that it was suspected though.

well that's fair. instead of borrowing from your family for a long time, might as well copy one for your own use..

I mostly buy original CDs ..and I downlaod movies directly...Though I bought some pirated CDs but the picture quality was very bad ..so I had to throw in the dustbin...According to me dont go for pirated CDs...Original Cds might cost you a little...but the picture and sound quality is awesome

yes, you are absolutely right. own the original. the only reason for anyone to own a copy CD is when there isn't any in the market/ nowhere to get it except by burning from the only source available. that's what i think.

I must say that I do have pirated movies in my movie collectin. As a matter of fact pirated DVDS are lot more cheaper than that of the original movies and apart from that these days they even have a real good quality. I must say that it is bad. But I have few number of pirated movies as my movie collection.

at least that you've been honest. but the fact is, it is unethical to own a pirated CD when they're available in the market. it's killing their career especially for newcomers in the entertainment industry. hopefully we get the original the next time we want to add to our collections. thanks for sharing diillu!

Hi singlepixel! I have pirated CDs as my collection. WHY - because they are my favorite collection. And I bough pirated ones because they are cheaper and the quality of the movie (if not always) is also same as the original ones. WHAT - they are mostly about teeny boopers movies. *hehe* Mostly, movies that I really like watching. Romantic ones, drama, love, action, musical movies.. :) HOW LONG - As long as they are still functioning well. *hehe* NEED - Not really a need. I can live without them. But having these CDs on my rack and watching them serves as a relaxation and stress reliever for me. :) Hope I answered every quesiton there. *hehe* Take care and God bless! \(",)_
