I agree with you ive wasted hundreds over the past few years for terrible software, i DL and make sure its suitable for me and my needs, nothing worse
than buying something which then tries to take over your computer because you have limited control, and i believe this is where a lot of programers
falter, they dont all consider what effect it will have on my pc's, and why should they? every pc is different, they cant suit all, unfortunately
there is a policy in place in almost all stores of no returns once the item is opened, how can i tell if it is suitable if i cant open it? that part
as far as i am concerned is the scam.
Yeah sure there are those who would open it and copy it then return it, that is not my problem, a lot of web sites offer trial periods but there is
always a catch, which is normally restricted use or some options unavailable,
I also use piratebay for DL tv shows ive missed which is not harming anybody, i will buy what i like and delete what i dont.
The entertainment industry is its own enemy, signing artists and lending them vast amounts of money to tour ETC, but then the artist ends up working
for buttons while they pay back the companies, and believe me i speak from personal experience being a drummer for a well known metal band in the
80's, we got ripped off big time until we changed labels after 3 years, only then when we got control of our material did we start to benefit but
that was long ago and another lifetime ago.
Of course the likes of piratebay have to have advertising they offer a free service they have to pay for it somehow, im even a member of a well known
torrent site which i donate too, then you have to consider the people who just cannot afford to go buy a cd or dvd, are they not to be entertained?
I fear this will be the end of piratebay but as most of the users know they already have a backup site. Also the piratebay has cleaned its torrents
and does often to remove porn from the site as it is uploaded, i just hate being ripped off by a smarmy millionaire who cares for nothing but their
bank balance, while sitting on billions of artists hard earned money.
The music industry has changed so much artists hardly make money from recording anymore, the revenue is made by touring which IMO should be the way it
is, let the public see you and participate, a good example is the band System of a Down and their cd--- steal this cd--- i know its a title but its
also a statement on behalf of the consumer, and i have that from the horses mouth.
