i like to look at piracy in terms of the free market system. if i steal from the likes of b. gates and b. spears, maybe they'll be less inclined to make more of the crap they have been making. if we bring this argument to it's logical conclusion we'll have musicains (programmers, filmmakers, whathaveyou) producing only the stuff they feel is morally/socially/aesthetically sound and just and not crap that white men between 18-34 buy.
but then i can see us decaying into communism, and you know everyone with a computer will be the first up against the wall. . .
so maybe i should support the ms/gates fund for world domination.
