Your example is stupid and wrong.
First of all: OK, you bought the cake, you share it with a friend. No problem there. We had laws in Germany that even allowed sharing of media. You
were allowed to copy a CD onto audio cassettes and give them to friends. No problem, it was legal.
The first difference is: You gave it to a friend, someone you know.
On the internet? It's not sharing, you don't give it to friends but to maybe 50.000 people you don't know. And there's a difference between one
copy and 50.000, right?
Next: Copying was ok, because the Quality got degraded, copying from a CD to a cassette degrades the quality, same with video copies.
Today? There's no degradation in quality.
Today you can download complete DVD and even Blu-Ray Rips, no degradation of quality, no loss, nothing. Same with music. Only ignorant idiots use MP3,
most people download the .wav files or at the least FLAC, you get it for free in good quality.
Back then if you wanted the media in good quality you bought it, today? You don't have to buy it, because there's no need for it and that is
Like i said before, people work to create that media, it's their job, it's what they get money for, they deserve the money. Doesn't matter if your
jealous because a band makes more money per month than you and you think they have enough.
You see the difference between sharing copys in only decent quality with friends and giving away media copied in good to perfect quality to complete
Like i said, it's the same as people stealing cars. You won't steal a car and then say to the police "Oh but i didn't stole it, i shared it,
everyone should be allowed to use that car". Right?
