Most Pirated Video Games

October 09, 2012|  

Internet piracy is something that is very difficult to tackle. Agencies like SOPA have been constantly working hard to censor and monitor Internet to make it safer and obviously 'not free for anything that costs'. Even then, today millions of illegal copies of games, software and e-books are available on many sites, most famously torrent sites, which can be downloaded for free even though in reality they obviously cost you something more than zero.

What I think about this piracy thing is that the people who fall for pirated stuff are people who don't want to buy things they use or they like to do illegal things or are highly innocent and internet illiterate people who don't know that what they are doing is illegal. But whatever the matter, let's not think much about it.
