The following are not logically or ethically valid arguments in defense of what one does, even if, for the nonce, they "work" in a pragmatic sense:
(Paraphrasing and breathless exclamation-points included free-of-charge…because you like free.)
- "It's 'legal' here even if it isn't over there! …not that we're going to squawl like scalded cats the split-second what's 'legal' over here CHANGES, leaving our asses dangling over the pikes."
- "Our very BEST intellectual-lite argument for sharing files is a worm-brained Marxist rant against "profit" — even though we certainly expect to get paid at the end of a week's worth of days of rolling out of bed every morning in order to go to work! ….hey, c'mon, gimme a break, here — the camera was rolling, and I needed to come up with something fast that Chill Dren living off parental allowances or government school-grants could relate to!"
- "'Markets' are not natural. …which means that when islanders trade coconuts for fish, or sex for gaijin dollars — or what have you — they're breaking some immutable communist doctrine that only Swedish Shaggys can comprehend even as they're paying bona-fide fiat MONEY for more SERVERS in the computer hardware MARKET. (Meanwhile, plundering Irish monestaries from a drakkar-headed longboat is perfectly 'natural'.)"
- "Yay Scandihoovia! Boo US!"
How on earth is it possible that, with all the time in the world, these guys couldn't come up with better than this self-serving tripe? — If they're going to make a case against intellectual property-rights, why don't they?
I observe they've missed a saliant point in that nobody pirates IMAX movies for obvious reasons — which would have been the natural follow-up to clip regarding the music industry rediscovering that live performances are where the cash was and still is (in markets, you dumbshits).
