had a rough day at work
I don’t buy into the notion that people wouldn’t purchase something if they couldn’t take it for free. That is potential earnings that people worked hard for and deserve to be paid for. I also care bc that is the right thing to do.
That's great, now go hug the corporation.
The fact that the game/music/film industries grow significantly year over year despite the fact that piracy is easier than ever is kind of a direct rebuttal to your philosophy
No, that is potentially even more growth that is not occurring. It just means thankfully there is a large percentage of people that are actually willing to pay for their entertainment rather than feel entitled to it.
No-one wants to hear a tattletaling tatertot.
Empathy is great and all, but what exactly is the degree of someone who you know nothing about. It's not like any other industry doesn't forfeit from crime. Pinning this in grandstanding is shallow.
I honestly won’t agree with what seems like the majority here, and to be honest I expected better from this site.
lol man you are a corporate bootlicker.
Oh yes let’s cherry pick unrelated employees in some reach for justification. Whatever helps you sleep better.
Nah, being concerned about "NOT ENOUGH GROWTH!" when the industry is breaking records makes you the bootlicker.
Underpinning all this is a rat race for finite resources in a world that's at teeter's edge for a lot of people, all across the world. If this it what pushes your motor muscles like this I would like to tell you that I have international family in very precarious countries at the moment, and I can't seem to do shit about it.
More growth is good too, I want the companies I enjoy content from toget the most out of what they put out. And not all companies are breaking records and being successful, some or doing ok or just getting by. Again, not going to feel bad for being called a corporate bootlicker.
