I don't think so. I've broken into theaters, and stolen $190k reels, and made TC's from them. I've uploaded, what, 19 TB of **** onto the net, and no one (edited) cares. No, not really. Don't google "sickboy88", you'll not end up with thousands of movies that someone pretending to be me must have uploaded onto the net. Seriously though, people copy tapes, 2x boom box decks were big in the 80's right? No one gave two shits. That's how the whole scene of "mix tapes" came into effect. The same with today's world. No one really cares. If I copy a movie, and keep it, rotting on a platter, then a friend asks for it, who really looses out? More often then not, it's the video rental store that looses out, and more often then not again, they didn't have the film in the first place. Eventually, the studios will stop putting out ****, and DRM will die. When a quality product is released, then people will buy it. I own most of the movies I have ripped. It's a fact. Weird *edit* stuff, that people can't find. I download a lot of *edit* garbage from usenet...most of it is, in fact, edit *garbage*. Occasionally, I will find something mind blowing...most of the time, I never even knew it existed. At that point, I make every effort to support the artist, and purchase the film. That's being a good person. --- Webslinger: Look, I shouldn't have to search posts for swearing. You're just making my life more difficult. Please don't.
