Today I saw a link on thepiratebay.org of the movie 127 hours. I heard it was a good movie and I posted this link on Twitter and Facebook. Immediately one of my friends (who I thinks works for (fucking) Microsoft) commented “Don’t support piracy”. I was quiet shocked. This poor guy’s brain is so washed by the Bill Gates team that he doesn’t even know what piracy is.
Lets take this scenario. Each Windows distribution thats shipped by Microsoft contains millions of zero’s and ones in it (thats how data is represented to computers). So since zero was invented in India, did Microsoft pay any royalties to my my nation? Why doesn’t my friend question that? Is he dumb? An idiot? Stupid? Insane? Incapable of thinking alone? And does he listen to others and act like a puppet? I don’t know! Its hilarious to think about him.
Lets take another example. Its quiet established that modern agriculture came into place in Syria. Thousands of years ago Mr. X who was a non Syrian bought some grains (he owns the grains he bought mind you), he knew how to duplicate the grains (by a new method called agriculture). He took it to his country and multiplied it. Syria did not claim any patent laws, if it did there would none left in this world other than Syrians.
In a similar manner one of my unknown friend from somewhere got a copy of this movie 127 hours. He / She liked it and wanted to share it. He knows the method to share it and so he did it on thepiratebay.org , when I told about it to my friends that some good guy is sharing a beautiful stuff he has, its called piracy. Really wonder whats going on?
