Link: Double Standards

Harry C. Marks on pirating software vs. pirating movies, books and music:

  1. If you’re a software developer trying to make money, locking things down means you get paid and you don’t have to live out of dumpsters for the rest of your life.

  2. If you make movies, TV shows, or music, piracy is okay because we’re the ones getting dicked over by a locked-down system designed to put food on the tables of content creators.

Yup, that seems to be the consensus.
