I love my Integra, in fact it's big enough that I'm squeezing my full-size mattress into the hatchback today, it has great acceleration, and also excellent mileage. The only real problem with it is any nice young ladies trying to give me roadhead would get a bruised clavicle even with the short throw shifter...

The game on a disc with an instruction manual is a physical item. Noone I know steals these. Producers are not being denied the rights to their physical property, Noone is being enslaved for their works. A producer isn't under the physical control of a person that digitally duplicates their work. It's sad to see words like piracy and slavery used to describe people that copy information without permission. It's a crime, but at least acknowledge that no physical property is removed from the owners' control.
