How much of a (n intellectual property) pirate are you?

This is a spinoff of a thread in the media center, but I hope you'll indulge me and let it hang out here for a bit.

I'm just curious to see how the plethora of legal options to obtain movies, TV, and music has impacted piracy.

The basic idea is - do you obtain media for use in your home legally, or do you pirate it?

Poll on the way.

Yeah, I thought about going with a 100%-0% scale on everything, but it got too crazy, so I fuzzed up the categories a bit. My apologies.

Music and books are the only thing I pirate. The occasional movie.

Also, I screwed up the poll, so the first 4 people who respondent weren't counted correctly. I'd fix it if I'd made the poll public, but I can't now. So sorry. I fail.

I put mostly legal on a couple because I'll borrow CDs or movies from friends/family and rip them onto a hard drive.

I pirate the hell out some movies, only Game of Thrones as far as TV goes because HBO doesn't have an online service available without an active sub.

For music I try to support the artists I really like, but I end up downloading a lot of stuff and keeping it if it's good. If I love it I'll typically buy it.

I don't pirate video games or software that often, again because I want to support the developers but also because pirates have a habit of putting nasty shit in there.

I pirate a lot of movies and TV shows. I justify it to myself by saying that I wouldn't have purchased those things anyway, but the reality is that the temptation is so great and it's so easy to do that it's hard to resist.

I don't pirate software. That just seems different somehow. Don't ask me why, because I can't explain it.

Thinking that you pirating movies/tv shows is ok but me using my neighbor's wifi connection without their knowledge is douche behavior.

You trying to justify it is douche behavior.

You're really a dumbass, aren't you?

Your neighbors are real people who can be victimized by your behavior. If you use your neighbor's wifi connection to download copyrighted material, your neighbor will be the one who gets the letters from his ISP threatening to throttle back his connection speeds or cancel his Internet service.

If I download copyrighted material using my own Internet connection, at least I'm man enough to face the consequences for my own actions. I don't hide behind my neighbors and cause them to take the blame for what I do.

That's the difference, and that's why you are a douche.
