Why We Hack: The Benefits of Disobedience - Lifehacker. @Unionhawk: I'd promote this further, but alas I can not.
Excellent point, when the article started talking about how music piracy was mostly from people concerned about their digital rights I lost interest. I doubt that piracy of music has much to do about anything other than "free" for the majority of people. As you said, breaking the encoding on your own disc for your own use is completely different than going to pirate bay for a new album. @Unionhawk: I think most rational and intelligent people would agree with you. However, the position of organizations such as the RIAA and MPAA is that there is NO difference between the two.
I was just thinking about this last week when I was trying to reactivate my legally purchased Vista key. I can honestly say I don't think I had ever pirated software before. Tuesday, October 19th, 2010 is the day Microsoft turned me into a pirate. @okolowicz: I understand the position that the RIAA et al have.

Hmm I really can’t, for the life of me, figure out why. Anyway, posted below is the original warning sent out by the hacker group, which can only be called revolutionary pretense.

Raymond As editor of the Jargon File and author of a few other well-known documents of similar nature, I often get email requests from enthusiastic network newbies asking (in effect) "how can I learn to be a wizardly hacker? ". Back in 1996 I noticed that there didn't seem to be any other FAQs or web documents that addressed this vital question, so I started this one. A lot of hackers now consider it definitive, and I suppose that means it is. Still, I don't claim to be the exclusive authority on this topic; if you don't like what you read here, write your own.
