Default Re: Just finished HALO 2

LOL... this argument has been done before:

1. someone says playing pirated games is the same as stealing a car
2. someone else says its not
3. repeat.

the fact of the matter is because pirating occurs all over the world, there are different laws regarding it. some countries might compare it to stealing intellectual properties, some to a more physical object. in each case/country, the punishment, if there are any, is different as well, which are shaped by our perception of what category software piracy falls under. some of us believe there is nothing wrong with playing with pirated software, and some of us equate it to grand theft auto. i think until there is a more universal law for piracy this argument isnt going to go anywhere..... hows that for contribution?
