100% your nothing close to a business major, What do you mean not buy "Chinese shlt" you rather buy "shlt" from USA based distributors who buy wholesale from china for most likely half or 3/4 the price?

You're right not a business major. Computer technology engineer.

While he is a cool guy and everything, what he opened up is illegal and it "might" hurt some people

Actors or Musicians such as Britney Spears, 50cent, and Brad Pitt aren't going to be hurt by piracy.

The people that might are small time computer programmers who make their living programming apps or shareware based applications.

Piracy sometimes help small time Musicians.


But these days there are billions of people out there with computers so even if 99% of stuff is pirated there is still a lot of money to be made now a days as compared to like 10 years ago when nobody owned computers except computer nerds.

I do the same. If I can't find it with minimal effort I have zero problems buying the content. I probably average 1-2 albums and month through iTunes, multiple tracks, and 1-3 movies through Apple TV a month. I have found a couple small bands that I really liked through Reddit who will give their content away on band camp or ask for a couple bucks for a track which I am more than happy to donate when I really like the material.

Yeah it's an option, but the quality is usually not up to par with straight 320kbps MP3 rips.
