You think the AboveTopSecret.Com wouldn't get on your a** if you copied their website as your own?
Yes, they would. They are a company with an image out to make a profit. You can't make much of a profit when your image/gimmick is floating every which way for free.
Obviously not many in this thread programs for a living (I have done it for a couple of years, privately), and it is a real kick in the A** to see your work out there on pirate sites (there is nothing that can't be cracked, durrrr)...
It's just about as bad as owning a construction company and seeing your house designs pirated and being GIVEN to people for FREE.
Who is going to buy from you then, when they can get it for FREE?
That being said, I pirate all the time still... but I believe in Anarchy
I'm just saying, you have to look at the bigger picture - but more importantly the aggregates that make up the relation of that picture.

I am going to upload my upcoming album to torrent sites like TPB, why? Access to a wider audience, I just have to hope that some will like it and appreciate the time, money and effort spent making it and send some money my way via my own website.
