...ly pay, however certain games like DinoCriss 1 was really hard for me to even come by, and I had to torrent it until like 3 months later I was lucky to buy a Rare copy off ebay. Now sharing illegal virus, and hacks, or cheating programs , or things that can cause harm I do not agree with. Also any game company that doesnt want...

I use this to catch up on shows not available to me due to my location, I think media should be sharable as it was paid for by the person who shares it. A copy is never as good as the original and I have both depending on my level of interest.
