    OK, the picture made me laugh, even if the concept behind it is wrong. It looks like a piece of promotional art for some lost Monkey Island game. Hell, the eyepatch-and-hook pirate up front looks like he wants me to ask him about Loom.

    Arr!

    The point is that the RIAA/MPAA picked a term to use in place of “copyright infringement” that they hoped would cause severe negative connotations. No one cares if some college students are engaged in “copyright infringement,” but “piracy” has the ignorant sheep all up in arms. As such, I’m rather vocal in opposing the use of the term “piracy” in the manner seen these days.

    @Inev: Oh how I wish they’d make a new Monkey Island.

    @NoOneInParticular: piracy, as a term, had been used long before illegal uploading and downloading of copyrighted material. In NYC there were a few ‘pirate’ radio stations jut far enough to be in international waters (sometimes) and I’ve been told that the same thing happens just over the Mexican border.

    Here’s a little exercise:

    What’s the difference between theft and piracy?

    I know someone who became famous through people who pirated his first feature length movie, that he animated all by himself.

    He called it, a torrentical release. (instead of ‘theatrical’, because he’s clever)

    @HoChunk:

    Yeah theft is part of piracy so what. I say, if it’s virtual, and you wouldn’t have bought it anyway, nobody loses anything.

    Besides, when pirates steal, it’s called booty. Everyone likes booty.

    @dieAntagonista: I think HoChunk doesn’t like booty. We can’t have his kind of people on McS… MAKE HIM WALK THE PLANK!

    @dieAntagonista: I use torrent for some stuff (like TV shows) that I won’t pay for but I also download music and programs that if I like them, I will pay for them.

    @hvymetal86: There is undoubtedly evidence that HoChunk likes booty, but like any real pirate I just want to see… SOMEONE WALK THE PLANK! @outofocus: Seems fine to me. I read through Digg an article about how, most people who pirate music, wouldn’t buy it in the first place. But it is through people like that, that said music gets popular and they tell their friends who then might buy it etc. I used to buy music per iTunes, which was fine, but ever since I had a computer crash and I lost everything, I don’t do that any more.

    This pic, while funny, is wrong. Theft and piracy are pretty much the same thing. Pirates steal stuff. The argument here is copyright infringement isn’t theft. Theft removes the original. Copyright infringement doesn’t.

    My take on the whole affair. Does copyright infringement cost the various media cartel’s money? Yes. Does it cost them as much as they claim? Hell no. Their real losses are probably less than 10% of what they claim since the vast majority of the people who download ‘media’ wouldn’t buy it even if they couldn’t get it for free.
