My friend who is one of the computer guys here probably sells copies, his copies of everything are extremly well prices and reasonable. I will send him a message.

Keli, I'm just curious. Are the "copies" legit or are they pirated? Pirating is illegal, even if done in another country and it costs us all money.

Of course this would not apply if your friend has purchased copyright privileges.

you just asked me this in a PM. I thought today you even said you now think it is best we don't talk on the board?

I will answer your question again since you asked and I don't like to ignore questions if I can answer.

No clue if they are legit or not. It is not my concern. That is between the computer man and the person who wants to purchase, I don't sell and was answering Taco's question...she asked for a "copy." I assume not considering nothing in this town is legit for dvds and cds.

Translvania Tech (the movie rental store) sells all their movies copied and bootleg with their name on it.

The CD stores are all copied cds too and put their names and copied covers from the orginals on them. Not my concern, fortunately not my area of business and just letting her know if she wants a copy. All throughout the city you find this too.

Actually I posted after the PM so that I could post the link and maybe people would think twice. Any way you characterize it, it's stealing. That should be everyone's concern and I'm surprised you would be a part of enabling people to engage in criminal activity.

You are right. I never said it was not stealing or right! I answered her question as we have no way to get that here.

All your friends here engage in this behavior as every person who rents DVDs here, purchases CDs here, etc have no choice. We do not have real copies here.

We are going to bed. Law, let it go. You keep starting up new arguements and I am not agueing, I agree!! I answered her question on how to get the copy. All she would have had to do is ask in town and anyone who lives here would have said the same.

It's okay, just another area where we have a different viewpoint. No hard feelings.
Pam, I'm surprised you approve as well, what with your legal training and all. I'm always amazed that people think theft is somehow justifiable. Is there anything else on the island where lack of easy access justifies stealing?
