Piracy – Is It Really a Big Problem?

Piracy has been around since the invention of the home computer, and doesn’t seem to have destroyed the industry yet. There are arguments to be made on both sides as to whether or not piracy has done any substantial harm over the years, but the fact remains that computer software and video games have only grown since the seventies.

I thought piracy has been around since people discovered they could keep parrots as pets and wear eye patches.
