Stop it. Piracy has been around LONG before any of that. You should be championing the rape of Civil Rights and not pointing the piracy finger at everyone. I HIGHLY enjoy having all my games on an HDD and not having to keep a bunch of discs lying around. I LOVE that my child doesnt have access to my expensive discs that id rather not have to replace because they are careless and dont treat them with the same gentle care I do.
If protecting the property ive legally purchased from damage and making my catalog of games more accessible is me being a "pirate" then my rights as a consumer to protect my purchases are far more pilfered than I could have imagined. Its presumptuous comments like the ones youve made that are why SOPA and CISPA are continually thrown in our faces. Lack of knowledge and pure assumption on the part of politicians, lawmakers, and the general public. Labeling an entire group of people is no different than stereotyping someone for their race, religion, economic/social status, etc, etc, etc.
