I am not promoting buying pirated cd/dvd but I do buy them. I have the a copy of almost all the TV series, korean TV series and old movies. I don't buy the newly released movies in pirated version because the copy sucks. I do download them in torrents.

My husband and I are fond of watching movies but due to the soaring prices of all commodities, basic or otherwise, we resorted to buying the pirated DVD copies instead. Most of the time the copies are okay but some are not. Unfortunately, many of these copies were stolen from our rented house more than a couple of months ago. Along with these, the thieves even stole two pairs of my husband's trousers. Now that we already have a cable installed in our television, and we get to watch local and foreign movies about a year or less after they're shown in theatres, we're quite contented with that instead of shelling out cash to buy pirated ones. Also, the cable channels usually repeat them so we could view them on days when we aren't busy and when we're both at home. I would like to also download movies from the websites in the internet. But I just can't possibly do this at this time because we still don't have a computer at home but we are planning to purchase a computer set at the soonest possible time. Not only will we benefit from this, but our daughter who is turning three next month will definitely have more use of this because she'll be attending school about a couple years from now.

if its movies i download them. the good pirated copies are only out when the movie is released in a dvd too. but the torrent uploader are getting an access to r5 versions which are really good. patience is the key in downloading. It takes me about 3 hours to download a movie sometimes more. the series i have to buy in dvds because my hard disk space cannot really store an 8gb season. i do delete the movie after i watch them. i retain the ones i like and save them as dvds.

I buy only pirated copies of tv series... like Lost and Prison Break... but i have never bought a pirated copy of any movie... original dvd or vcd copies of tv series are quite expensive and not very accessible here in our country... and the episodes they show on tv are quite late... and are always replay... so my only option is the pirated copy...
