It's the companies who have their panties in a twist for the most part.

Recordable tapes are different though. You use them to record TV, which you have paid for. All you are doing is making a copy of something you own already, which is legal. With games and films, the technology in the medium has advanced so much in the last few years that it's made copying much harder. Firstly, DVD films have copy protection which prevent them from playing on anything other than the DVD they came on full stop. The only way for pirates to make copies of DVDs now is for them to record the thing on a computer with Fraps or something and reburn that video (resulting in much worse quality). With games, most developers use a system called 'SafeDisk'. This prevents games from working when burnt onto new disks. You get a 'Please insert proper CD to continue' message most of the time. This was brought about by Operation Flashpoint's technology, which made a copied game continually deteriorate until the game is unplayable (it also reported your computer details to their site if you went on the internet).

Not getting caught is the key. Only a moron gets caught selling or giving away free copies of games and movies/music. And you know quite honestly, I don't support the media industry because I think they rip us off. 15 bucks for a CD? Pfft, I bet not even a dollar of that goes to the artist. It takes like what, 25 cents to burn the music onto the CD in the first place and another 25 cents for the case, and maybe 3 bucks to ship the CD's off to the stores? The rest of that money goes to the recording industry, which provides rich white executives with more money than they need.

:uhoh: :lol: :lol: Guess you've never heard of DVD Shrink, DVD Decrypter, Clone DVD, Daemon Tools, No-CD Cracks etc etc. Copying has only become easier with modern technology. Hell, I can rent a DVD and have a perfect copy in less than half and hour. HOWEVER, if i like any film/game/music enough i'll buy it. I consider it to be 'try b4 you buy'. :)
