People are finally realizing that Torrents work THREE ways!!!

1. if your a nobody trying to be somebody then use the Torrents to get your work out there so people know who you are and then in the future people will be like "Oh i've seen his work before so i'm gonna buy it"!

Perfect Example: I watched an early Guy Ritchie movie and enjoyed it so now I buy Guy Ritchie movies on site and have BOUGHT his entire catalog!

2. Your a Mega rich studio blah blah blah and I'm gonna enjoy your work for Free this time around..."hey times are rough you know" and if it's good and I get some extra cash i will buy.

Perfect example: OK I will admit I watched The Dark Knight Rises but not in the theaters or on DVD....BUT I PAID to see The Dark Knight 5 times at a Theater and 2 of those times was in IMAX so they owed me one!!

3. Unfortunately it's mostly Brazil, Australia, and Greece that are Torrenting the hell outta stuff cause the stuff their cost WAY too much!

Lower the prices of games and media in those countries and Torrenting will go down A LOT!!

When you pirate something the following happens:

Lady Gaga can not buy her 20th mansion

Kane West cannot spend $50,000 on a watch that he will only use once.

Jennifer Lopez cannot order her assistant to fly half way across the world for a cup of coffee that is made with the milk of a holy goat in Budapest.

Lil Wayne cannot add another Ferrari to his already packed garage.

Please do not pirate as these people cannot live without these things and will die if they do not get them.

Knight crawler, singling out the richest and most successful people in the recording industry is an act of intellectual cowardice.

Why not mention the tens of thousands of people who work to distribute, market, mix, and otherwise support the recording industry?

Why not mention the thousands of small time bands forced to work day jobs because music is a free commodity now? Many of whom will never be able to blossom because they cannot devote more time to what they love.

Anyone who complains about the poor quality and 'sameness' of modern pop music while illegally downloading is a fool.

just bought and watched the film, I think it's worth the 8$

it feels a bit long but there are some great emotional moment. I think you have to have been playing the game since the beginning to appreciate it. I liked it as much as indie game: the movie.

mojang are awesome

Mojang are ahead of the curve.

What publishers don't realise is that one torrented film/song/game does not always equal one lost sale.

you may be right, but this is 2 player productions, not mojang. they are awesome though.

I used to 'pirate' a LOT, I would often buy a game on 360 or ps3 and then be curious what it looks like on PC, I'm not paying for the same game twice, I have already paid for the product. Or if a particular game does not have a demo out, that's another reason to use a torrent without actually stealing.

I also have a friend at work who buys PC games and leaves them sealed for his collection (and to avoid some of the crappier DRM methods) and torrents the game to play it instead.

It was going to end up on The Pirate Bay one way or another.

I don't think too many people would have bought this anyway.
