why would u feel the need to mock me? I avoided getting personal, and it seemed like u actually wanted to lead a discussion on a level a few notches higher than that of an infant, but i guess i was wrong.
in case u dont consider a $50,000 lawsuit, that u are practically bound to lose, a "huge bill", good for you.. sadly, i was but 17 years old at the time, and im telling u, this was no fun whatsoever.
Im not saying that the groups of the scene necessarily condone the use of p2p-networks, and if u actually read through my post, u would probably notice, that i in no way contradicted ur thesis of the sceners running greater risks than ur socalled leechers.
Even so, u may take note, that there are still races going on between the groups, of who can release x movie/game first. If this race is supposed to be decided by who can release to the sceners themselves first, whereafter the releases are leaked, you might be right. If that is the case, this particular line of argumentation will be disregarded.
Sorry didn't notice the denmark thing, in america the Riaa sends out a bunch of ludacris letters with crazy fines (that no one ever has to pay), like "50 thousands dollars a song", it's just scare tactics though.
