No Apologies; I Love That Joke!
But I do hate pirates. I'm not talking about people who have some MP3s that were ripped from friends' CDs or some ROMs of out-of-print games. 99% of computer owners, I'm sure, are in violation of the letter of the law. I'm talking about those hardcore types who sell bootlegged DVDs or use Netflix to burn themselves every movie ever put to film. I could expound on their ethical deficiencies or the harm they inflict on our wallets, but instead I would like to point out their most heinous crime:
Because of piracy, every time we pop in a DVD, we irretrievably lose 30 seconds of our lives staring at unskippable FBI and Interpol copyright warnings, often in various languages.
