Do you buy them?

Whats your reasoning behind buying them or not?



Sorry...that was supposed to be Bootleg, but it won't let me edit the poll :oops:
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

    What gekko said. If I'm that hot in the pants to see it, I will actually go to the theater.

    What Gekko and Geeky said. Plus, I'm a firm believer in copyright.
    When are women going to face the fact that they don’t know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

    I believe in copyrights, and just don't understand the motivation behind it.

    No, I wouldn't purchase them, and I don't watch them when I'm around people who have purchased them.

    Same thing with some of my students coming in now with movies they've downloaded off the Internet. I won't let them watch them in my class. Before you ask, I'm talking about lunch periods or recess when they just want to hang out in my room, not my class time. :D

    It's illegal...and just wrong, ethically, imo. It's tantamount to stealing.

    I'm VERY anti-bootleg movies. It's illegal, plain and simple.

    Same with getting "free" music off the internet - unless the artist makes it plain that he or she is ok with it being free.

    Stealing is stealing...just because it's easy and available doesn't make it right.

    Technically, downloading music off the internet is legal, too. Only uploading it isn't.

    I still think it's wrong, and have issues with it.


    I *love*, however, that many current artists encourage use of sites such as archive.org for sharing live and non-album versions of songs.

    Being an artist, I would freak out if someone used one of my images or paintings or photographs without my permission (that's why I don't post them on the internet), so no, I won't buy or watch them.

    Exactly. In fact, a few years ago, my husband's uncle gave out daughter two bootlegged videos. She was maybe two and was more interested in the teddy bear that came with them. I told DH that I couldn't believe he gave our child such a "gift" and threw out the videos the next day.

    My husband's friend has a bunch of them and he lets us borrow them- he is liek our personal movie rental place! Some of them are really crappy though. People are walking in front of the camera, coughing, talking ,etc. It's kind of funny! We atched one where the guy who was taping it must have fallen asleep b/c we coudl hear him snoring for liek half the movie! :lol:

    It's illegal and according to the posters that are around over here, it's supporting organised crime.

    No, I don't. Several years ago, hubby bought home The Matrix, and it turned out to be a piece of crap bootleg copy. We were pretty po'd. :x

    I'd rather pay full price and get the real deal.

    Why do people even buy boot legs when you can get them free?
