I'm not sure where I stand on this. I know that piracy is becoming a major problem but I also know a lot of people that can't afford to pay for games, movies etc. I'm going to look at it from a different perspective. I find the prices for a lot of "intellectual" property are insane. I mean 20+ dollars for a movie. These people are all way overpaid (actors making millions, etc). People have a very hard time supporting this kind of insanity and I don't entirely blame them. It's a case of the rich get richer and the poor get poorer to me. If you charge a reasonable price for anything, people will pay for it. This is extra prevelent in todays economy, I'm not saying that piracy is right, because it isn't.

I'm sure there are 1000 rebuttals to my statement but I feel it 100% true, we overpay for everything nowadays and movies and games are just becoming another thing to financially drain us.
