It’s difficult to venture into an anti-piracy agreement with a country you didn’t know existed. They're operated in countries I've never even heard of.

I don't think piracy can be stopped. There will always be people who will share software, music and movies around. There are so many sites you can download from.

Piracy is still ever ongoing, and that too at a very fast and overpowered rate. People don't feel that piracy is wrong because they don't get penalized for it.

I'm guilty of downloading stuff online. I download a lot and it's a lot of help for people who don't intend to buy the products due to budget constraints.

It's a huge problem for legit companies. They don't make money from all the downloads. It is stealing their property but I don't think they can ever shut these sites down.

If there's free software, why bother paying for the original? No wonder people patronize these sites.

Most people don't see anything wrong with it. They're sharing something they downloaded. Plus, you can't be persecuted for piracy.

Piracy is never going to go away. They may shut down one site, but a few go up. File sharing sites are so common now.

There's no solution to piracy. Might as well accept it. Anyone can share anything on the internet.

Piracy will always be there as long as file sharing sites are up. There are so many of them there's no way they can be shut down.

Piracy is normal now. People are so used to going online and downloading everything. You can access anything on the internet.

Piracy is here to stay. It may be illegal but they can't control it.

Everyone I know downloads everything on the net. From ebooks, movies, music and software. Every resource is available online now and they're free to download.

It's always a problem for artists because their music gets distributed illegally. They don't get anything and that irks them.

I rely on these sites for downloading. I hope they don't get shut down because original stuff costs a lot.

I don't understand why people are so annoyed by this. Maybe because they don't get so much money? It all boils down to greed.

You can't control what's on the internet. Piracy is so widespread.

They never got to control piracy. They may have shut down Napster but there are so many sites that you can still download from.

I download a lot of stuff and I don't think there's anything wrong with it. People share their stuff online and they're not violating any laws.
