Yeah your right, but that only helps the developer so far because who says the person will go to their business to get it fixed? The end user could be way on the other side of the map. Its logical for a large corporation like HP/Dell etc, when the less savy don't know whats going on and their computer is misbehaving. Things like spyware Key-loggers etc I could see a benefit. I guess if your going to mess with somebody and your not getting anything out of it. Access their webcam add this to your C++ form
OpenCloseDoor("D", true); //D is my cd drive
and watch their faces. At least you'll get a laugh. I work as a tech, and most of the time I see the suspicious redirects on websites, and malicious files sitting on the local drive. Its like they attract attention by the names alone lol. Some times I just think to myself what good does it do to the dev that created it if its not returning anything back to them.

Cold Play gets sued for their "Viva La Vida" song in 2008.
Fast forward a year later...
2009 Drake releases his first mix tape featuring a Cold Play sample from "Viva La Vida" making him known which then results in a record deal making him millions. Why wasn't Drake sued? Don't you think Cold Play would know the legalities of sample issues especially after being sued for that song in particular?
Some artist even go as far as using complete songs of other artist to use in their mixtape...
"Mr. Jones" is the first single from Mike Jones' album The American Dream. Bun B, Lil' Flip, DJ Drama, Letoya Luckett, Slim Thug, andKing Mello make cameo appearances. At the end of the song, Mike Jones claims that there is a film called The American Dream coming out as well as the EP. The single debuted at 92 on the Billboard Hot 100, but the following week it fell off the chart.
The video for "Mr. Jones" premiered on February 15, 2007 on BET's 106 and Park.
Rapper Lil Wayne used the music from this song, replacing Jones' lyrics with his own, and released the mix as "The Sky Is The Limit" on his2007 mixtape Da Drought 3.
Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. And please show proof of your rebuttal.
Anyway, you know what you were implying, I don't need to explain myself any further thank you...

So your defence is, someone else didn't get sued so you won't? plenty of people haven't been caught for murder doesn't mean its legal for you to shoot someone in the face.
You have no legal right to distribute other peoples music without consent. I can show you proof, look at any retail CD you have. Read the small print.
Well my ticking time bomb has remained dormant for 3+ years now... To be honest that whole thing about viruses is BS as long as you have even mediocre computer skills. I have never -EVER- had a virus. I do not condone piracy and I try my best to pay for the software I use, especially if I am profiting from it. However my music budget is limited to what I make through music, so I cannot always afford things that interest me. I have tried certain software before that was otherwise not available as a demo and if I really like it I make it a point to purchase it. If I don't end up using it I delete it. I hope to someday be able to have a reputation that allows me to test things from vendors through trust and confidence. Especially with regard to sample packs, there are a lot of companies out there just repacking things and trying to sell it to us at a premium. It is not a perfect system, and stealing is stealing so don't get me wrong. It is just tough to keep up with the pros who have a much larger budget which equates to access to stuff I would otherwise be non the wiser about.
get a mac f#@k a virus and yeah i download loads of illegal movie content never one virus or at least that i know of haha and you know what for people who have morals i respect that, i just dont have any or at least for digital content

Don't comment on this just for your own sake, a mod already got mad at me for talking about pirating as it is.
Pirating is up to you, if you want an experienced opinon your only gonna get caught seeding, no ones gonna sue you cause no one will find out. Plus most of you are pirates anyway, and half of you don't realise it. Sampling? Piracy. Mixing? Piracy. Even DJing? Yes, it can still be considered piracy.
Welcome to the United States Government, where we bend our constitution and laws so far that we can let corporations have intercourse with our wallets.

They are designed to prey on the computer illiterate in hopes of turning a profit somehow or harassing an individual. I do not fit the profile and with common sense and I suppose some luck I have managed to stay virus free. I know this because I know how to monitor my system process, my registry, and the incoming/outgoing traffic on my internet.
In fact, I have found the cracked content available actually comes stripped down, free of bloat ware and sometimes even malicious content. You can google Tone2, a company known for a popular VST called Gladiator. The creator of this VST added fake registry items and phone home protocols that could do potential damage to my PC, all in an effort to ensure software protection. I understand that protecting your content is important, but at what cost to the consumer?
