A guy at my work comes from Lithuania and there's a girl from CZ republic they tell me due to low wages and generally lack of money in both countries Every ones illegal downloading. In there words not mine. They see me with arm full of Cd's i buy from the CD store or asda or Salisbury's which i do not mind one bit paying for because one i like the covers i like to have the real thing. Two i have a nice quite well paid job with hours i adore and music my life. But i get ridiculed each time for buying Cd's even had comments from the management saying why do you not download them why do you buy them Back to the two at the top they say all the friends families have shelves full of downloaded and copied films where moneys so tight .. and its so easy to get them on the net. One guy said he even has a downloaded copy of windows which he has been using for a good while. He says this is his second one the first Microsoft hit him with a is it a sap (forgive me if i got that wrong) virus in an update so that copy of windows would no longer work. He Thinks at the bottom line there's no one going to come knocking at your door. Because of the millions at it why should they pick on you. Theres so many people at it .. really what is the bottom line you going to build hundreds of jails jail for illegal (which i always thought was a sick bird) downloaders. The answer i wonder is.. why the world hell bent on ripping people off why do they not lower the prices and more will buy them.
