I've heard everybody's opinion about pirating software. I want to hear people's opinion about pirating satellite (the signal, not the hardware ). The way I see it, they just have the price to inflated (in my country) right now. If they dropped the price for the programming they wouldn't have such a problem with piracy.
I've heard that Hughes (aerospace) is spending $4 billion trying to fight piracy (replacing cards with uncrackable versions).
I think they should just take that $4 billion loss (because it will be) and drop the prices to the consumers.
