Thatís the self-justifying myth propogated by the download thieves to excuse their transgressions but if thatís the case how come illegal downloads outstripped legal ones by a factor of 2 to 1 last year?
Itís such a ludicrous assertion Iím shocked to see it still being repeated here. Why would someone so firmly entrenched in the mindset of free illegal downloading suddenly decide that they want to actually pay for something?
Bullshit. The majority of independent research suggests pirates buy a hell of a lot as well. Sadly people seem more inclined to believe research paid for by the MPAA and RIAA that says otherwise (despite the massive conflict of interest).
Here's an article on a report by Ofcom saying pirates buy a lot of stuff http://www.techdirt.com/articles/201...-with-it.shtml
