someone wanted a copy of something, that you had would you be willing to help them?

Also at what cost to yourself?
Yes, most likely.

Cost? Time only, probably.

But it depends what YOU have! :sad:


Not if it was something you can only get by paying for it. I don't hold with stealing other people's work.

I'm a copyright holder, but I've also been an infringer.

To give a concrete example, a few months ago I took my mother to see Avatar in 3D. Within ten minutes she had a headache and we left the cinema. She was upset at missing the film so I downloaded a copy and she watched it in 2D at home. On the basis that we'd already paid to see it (and hadn't) I think that act of piracy was morally justifiable.
