Hello!! Do you give away any songs,games,softwares or movies demanded by your friends by burning CD or DVD. Don't you think this is violation of law.Are you not redistributing without the permission of the owner company or organization. By the way many of us rather everyone of us do this RIGHT??

Yep, we all know it's illegal, but still we do it. In my country, it's especially true because it is not at all affordable for people to buy original CD's of songs, games, software etc. You know, if you go to our town, you can find CDs being sold in the footpath for 15 to 20 rupees. I myself am against piracy, but still i share my music collection with my friends.. yeah, it is illegal allright!

ofcourse its not right.... and yeah almost all of us do this.... i dont know whether its right or wrong to disobey the copyright laws... but we are not able to stop it... and also we dont need to pay so many dollars when we can get it in cheap rates.... either the companies should sell it in cheaper rates... or they should write protect the cd from copying.... which i dont know whether its possible....

Well I know it's wrong to copy and distribute but sometimes we just do it anyways. I mean what's the point of your brother or your best friend paying $30 or $40 for a game they really love when you already have it? But anyway, you the know the games the Sims 2? I love those games and I have pretty much all the expansion packs. And sometimes I like to make copies of my expensive games like this for myself (which is not wrong at all) because I tend to lose or scratch them every now and then. Well when I tried it wouldn't let me because the game had something in it that made it uncopiable. And then sometimes I like copying my music, once again for myself, which is still not wrong. I leave the originals that I buy in my house, and the copies in the car, so if they get ruined in the car I won't have to go out and buy the whole CD again. I don't think having the uncopiable part of the CD is really fair because if we pay for it then it's ours. I think they should really just tighten up on the laws about not copying and distributing. But copies for our own purpose is fine and sometimes very needed (well at least in my case and some others I know), so it's not fair to me when I game I paid $30 I can't even make my own copy, and if something happens to it I'm expected to buy a new one! Well, I'm "talking" way too much here so happy holidays! :)

Umm yep it is a violation of law and I have burnt cds for my neighbor but it got to the stage where she kept asking me to burn them everyday and it was taking up a lot of my own personal time, so I told her that I don't have time to do it anymore. I've stopped every since!
