    DYKT: That's what you get for pirating software?
    DYKT: You should buy software you use a lot and like?

    DYKT: There are various reasons that could be attributed to your problem and pirated software is being far from one. If that's the case, I guess the company I'm working for is using alot of pirated goods and mind you the company is the second largest mobile telco in Malaysia so using pirated goods would be suicidal.

    DYKT : Pirated software is actually allowed for students?

    DYKT : It's only illegal to use pirated software if you're doing so for profit directly related to the software you're using? (According to one of my Uni lecturers)

    DYKT : "profit" can be defined as "any advantage obtained, monetary or otherwise" ? :)

    (I'm not sure this is true, though :) )

    DYKT : it may not be pirated ? large companies often have open licenses, so they may have very few actual copies.

    DYKT : Bill Gates probably doesn't make all the pirated software you have on your PC ?

    DYKT : Even if he did, that's a strange justification for ripping someone off ?

    DYKT : Not all of us are rich enough to buy original software?

    DYKT : alot of software tends to be over-priced anyway?

    DYKT : anyone who can afford a RM2000 PC can afford software (which usually costs much less ?)

    DYKT : There is no set price for software, so "over-priced" is just an opinion ? :) and

    DYKT : just because you think software is over-priced does not give you any justification to rip anyone off ? :)

    Then I'm sure EVERYTHING on your PC is original software then? (=

    DYKT : alot of us students cant afford our own PCs, let alone software?

    DYKT : Alot of our parents arent techies, and would really question the need to spend (for example) U$999 on Adobe Photoshop CS? (convert that. 4000 ringgit.)

    DYKT : OpenSource apps are a way to get around that problem, but alot of those supposed 'students who wish to rip off other ppl' are clueless about it and not really educated enough on the subject to dip their toes in it? :D
  13. DYKT : They dun sell any original software at all from where i come from.


    DYKT : Some of us dun have any choice but to buy pirated software even if we didn't want to?

    Really? Then does it applies to other things like mp3, etc. :mrgreen:

    But I still think anything that's pirated is illegal. :D

    If not illegal, then ppl trading software, mp3s, movies in P2P why get caught? It's not like they get any money from doing so. :think:

    DYKT: I'm at work now. :boohoo:

    DYKT: Not rich enough to buy software but rich enough to buy computer. :think: If so poor, can get freeware what, not that there's none around. ;)

    DYKT: It's overpriced because they need to pay ppl in developing the software. But that doesn't mean you can get it for free when the ppl developing it used so much brain cells and time. :whistle:

    DYKT: That doesn't mean you can use pirated software. Why not use freeware? If like that, do you think Robin Hood is right to steal from the rich and give it to the poor? :naughty:

    DYKT: They are not not educated, they are just plain lazy and because pirated software is the easiest way out. Plus the goverment is not going all out (but they claimed they do) in erradicating pirated software. :beer:

    DYKT: No money to afford original software is a lame excuse? :D
