Can we cut the false contradiction crap? It's unoriginal, not at all clever, and really makes you look like an idiot. Slashdot is not a hive mind, not one giant entity of one thought, but instead made up of many people with many varying opinions. IF you can't even get that right, including anyone who makes similar statements to that I've replied to, it will be hard to take said posters seriously.

All he said is that it is copyright infringement at best. Saying crime a [or civil tort a] != crime b is not saying crime a is ok. I'd defer to my book on discrete mathematics to demonstrate the fallacy in this specific statement. As to your second act - illegal yes - but only criminal past a certain point before which it squarely remains a civil issue.

I don't need to write anything down to see how retarded this post is.
THERE IS NO HIVE MIND! \ LOTS OF DIFFERENT PEOPLE POSTING THEIR OPINIONS. ' To claim hypocrisy when you're taking different pinions, and making some hoopla about how /. is contradictory, when it is different people in these threads posting different individual opinions, well, there is no word to describe how dumb that is. Get off your high horse, read up on basic logic, basic lingual skills pertaining to debate.

Honestly, they are creating shades of gray *derp* because maybe THERE ARE to them? Ever think of that? Just because you don't agree with them doesn't mean others are wrong for not subscribing to your smugly placed ideas, you know.

The inheent problem [in fact, IMO, the ONLY problem] with your argument is putting it into the scope of [work X] being copyrighted or not. THE ILLEGALITY IS BASED ON PERMISSIONS OR LACK THEREOF, not IN OF ITSELF whether a work is copyrighted. Copyrigt infringement is based largely on permissions or lack thereof, for example.

The business model may suck royally - making a demo that last's 5 minutes, and forcing you to download tons of GB of data even if you are just trying the game - seriously [though the IDEA of download it all, if you like it, just register and you have the full version is a good one] - but the sim, from what I've heard and seen, is incredible - I would hate for this to fuck all that up.
