“PIRACY” COMES HOME.

The most influential sentence in the history of the 21st century? Answer please________

Let me: PIRACY. PIRACY– Something which is unethical, illegal & similar to that.

But, who cares. Tell me honestly? Will ya? Don’t you want freebies? Almost everyone. And doing so, we forget about the strong will & hard work which the creator has contributed towards their work.

HMM ..let that sink in…

You spend 5$ (INR 400 approx.) on average but you don’t wanna buy an Antivirus which will cost INR.600/3months. You don’t wanna buy the original music album (in most cases) which costs you (10$) because why should you? You can download the pirated one.

Here’s a small suggestion: If someone is new in the market & selling a music album, self-developed software, a teacher selling their recorded lecture, or anything similar to that, try to buy it. If not, then at least avoid spreading the pirated version. DO it for humanity(if there’s any in you)…. 

But but….. Not saying the same about composers or singers or developers who already are a millionaire. lol . I’m not proposing to perform piracy, it’s the last thing I would want someone to do. If you’re financially stable then go for the original product.

If you’re lucky then Piracy sometimes can be helpful in terms of getting popular. If pirated copies of your products get viral on the internet then there are high chances of your product being sold in other countries.  Read this by NEIL’s good reads on piracy. –scroll down a bit.

Talking about stats, despite endeavors to diminish piracy, it has penetrated each digital media format from tv and motion pictures to music, program, video recreations, and indeed books. More than 130 billion visits were made to piracy websites in 2020. The Joined together States, Russia, and China contribute the most noteworthy number of visits to piracy websites.

Indeeed!

Worldwide Visits to Piracy Sites in 2020:–130.5 billion visits to piracy websites in 2020– -357 million visit/day– –248,287/min. Millions of jobs are lost due to piracy. Billions of dollars of revenue are lost due to “PIRACY”. LAW- Under U.S. law, infringement may result in civil damages of up to $150,000 and/or criminal penalties of up to five years imprisonment and/or a $250,000 fine.

The snowflake transformation will not be broadcast, it'll be pirated online, go viral and rapidly scatter within the sand trap of post.

“I think piracy is a bit like drinking. You want to stay out all night doing it, you pay the price the next day.”

  1. Thanks, Lokesh.
    I would say 80% good and rest badly.
    Most products are affordable or at least less than what many of us spend daily on average.
    Apart from that, going for the pirated products will lead you to trouble more than often.

  2. It’s a thin edge to balance upon and one can slip either way. I agree that it can be beneficial but mostly it’s a pain. Yes, people aren’t willing to pay the price. Not that they can’t afford it but why not get a freebie. Crippled mentality.
    Thank for sharing this. 🙂

  3. We need to be concern about piracy ,but it’s also true sometimes we are forced to take pirated copy as we can’t afford the original one. You have written beautifully. Thank you for sharing ☺️😊🌷

  4. Yes, piracy has been quite rampant just like those pirates of the bad old days. I have to say those anti-viral software are pretty expensive and one has to pay for subscription fee every year. And the problem is even if you have paid, you are not guaranteed that virus will not attack you. The protection software can only do so much.

  5. I completely understand.
    The original work of any person should be rewarded.
    The benefit is far too less as compared to the loss.
    I didn’t know about the “benefit” part until I came across that link in the 7th para.
    Hope people will understand.
    Appreciate your thoughts.
    Have a good day ahead.

  6. The bad old pirates! Back in 2012 when I was a kid, there were many pirate-related tv-shows & I was the one who uttered “pirates are our savior” Guess not.
    That’s true about anti-virus. But, we don’t have much choice other than to GO with them.
    Choice has to be made.
    Thanks for your views, Haoyando.
    Have a good day ahead.

  7. Piracy is definitely a problem but I wish it was easier to find legal versions of films or shows we want to watch. We should be at a point where everything is streamable but too often things simply aren’t available for rent or purchase.

  8. Most ferocious reason is that many different platforms are releasing their own platform. You can’t find harry potter & GOT on Netflix. So, that’s why people have to go with second method.
    Though, improvement is possible.
    Thanks for your views, Jay.
    Have a good day ahead.

  9. I sit and write my response here. Pondering a way to get around television restrictions to find an alternative media site to watch a football game tonight. Am I condoning piracy?

  10. Several websites & unauthorized media platforms telecast the live show. I don’t know which type of restrictions you’re mentioning here but, not subscribing for tv-channel & going through alternative mediums definitely comes within piracy.
    The output is that, if we’re able to afford a genuine platform then going for the alternative is a sin.
    Have a good day ahead.
