Re: Hey, I stopped reading on the first line because of asshattery.
Really? So that's why in an era where main music sellers are selling music in non-DRM MP3 format, people have stopped pirating music?
Pirates will not stop simply because the content will run on all their devices because most pirates don't care about DRM any more than most paying consumers do.
Stop trying to justify why you're crusading for what's right, rather than just stealing. If it was the former you would pirate an 'open' version and then give a fair price to the author/publisher, or even to charity. But you don't, because you're a thief looking to justify it.
