honestly, do you support piracy?

yes. i seldom buy original cds right now. i could easily download them through the net. as for dvd's, quiapo is a haven for me with all the movies and titles your eyes could feast on. it may hurt our industry and probably if i were an artist, i would abhor such pirated cds and dvds but what can i do?

I do support piracy. It's not fair that just because you're poor or don't have enough money that you can't appreciate music and the likes. Besides, there are regional barriers as well. I prefer asian music (ranging from Chinese to Korean to Japanese) and frankly, I don't see enough of my favorite artists being sold around here. I have to download them. I would buy them if I could. Even if I had the money, I wouldn't be able to buy them since I can't find them around here.

i personally dont support piracy i´ve been reading some of the comments that it hurts the artist pocket when you dont buy original dvd´s. but there´s a whole process from the moment the film is finish until it get´s to the store, for example you have distributors around the world where they sell the rights to play the movie to cinemas, sell it to video stores, dvd shops, stores. so you see when you download a pirated movie , it hurts all these people because if the business is no profitable they will have to close, what will happen with all these families, think about it!!!!
