Introduction

Piracy Piracy has grown largely in the past decade and since I had my first computer, I've seen myself a significant increase in both - the piracy and the concerns about, unfortunately, the second is growing way faster... Many people have problems with piracy, some of them are the singers themselves and they claim that if you listen to their songs for free, then you should be providing some service for them too: 'If you have the right to download my music for free, then if you're, say, a plumber, then I have the right to call you up and demand that you fix my plumbing for free' - a "clever" comment by Metallica's singer. ...read more.

Overall I can make the following conclusions. Piracy is good. However it doesn't give much to the producers or even give them a little loss, nevertheless big promotion, consumers like what is easily affordable and by not including hundreds of security scripts they only encourage people to use their software. ...read more.
