The entertainment industry and software industry now losses billions of dollars because of piracy all all over the internet. I wonder people who downloading softwares, musics, and movies that was illegaly copied and downloaded from their sources on the web. They do not see that because of this many people losses their Jobs. Maybe their were not one of in this industry. How about their relatives? How about their future sons/daughters? If authorities cannot control it. We must the one who make responsibility about it. all of us are accounted with this effects in a global ecomic crises. What do you think about this? Do you agree that people should stop downloading copyright softwares,musics, and movies on the web? or just ignore it?

Hi! I don't know where you are from, but here in Brasil the reality is different. First of all, nobody losses job because of piracy, the owner of the company always want more and more money and when the owner can't get, fire. Capitalism is that, people winning and people losing. Linux foundation don't fire people because of piracy, piracy is the result of proprietary software. Companies win selling to companies, never individual. Piracy will never dominate and the companies can't stop the piracy, that's is a natural feature. If you think that people losses job because of piracy, is time to review your concepts. Article 1: All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. Endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

i dont think that if you download a song or a movie a lot of people will lose their jobs. i mean who never downloaded a movie? or a music? its like everyone is doing that. if companies lost money bcs of it then there wouldnt exist companies at all. i dont think it is bad if you download a movie or song you like. its not everyone that can afford to go to the theater or to buy a cd. i think that there will always be people buying the cds and the dvds so they will always earn money. downloads are not a bad things. actually i think its a great thing for those that sadly cant afford to buy what they like. and they already make millions and billions of dollars it wont be bcs of downloads that they will become poor :)
