Never justifiable. It's only for the lazy.

if the game is so old, it's no longer available for purchase, and the game company who made the game no longer exists, and there's no reasonable way of getting the game whatsoever, then i'd say pirating is justifiable in that instance.


This, and same goes for DVD's if they're out of print. Also, if a series or movie has no realistic likelihood of being released in your country then there isn't much of a choice.

I often watch anime online for free but I buy it when I can. Being in the UK, that's not always possible though.

Of course you crunchyrollers wouldn't see the value of piracy. You forget that the first animes you watched were probably watched illegally. If you can't get things in your country without piracy then I think piracy is perfectly justifiable.

I personally don't pirate things whenever possible but when crunchyroll feeds you scare stories all the time and give you a false self-righteous pride in yourself when you legally support what others struggle to find then even I have to stand up for piracy.

No for the law must be absolute. A crime is a crime and thus deserves the maximum sentence available regardless of the reason it was committed. To do otherwise is folly and invites corruption and anarchy.


A world of blind justice, with neither mercy nor compassion.

Such a world would do nothing to suppress corruption, rather it would institutionalize it as the law of the land with no means of recourse. Retribution against any who would oppose the System would instantaneous and absolute.

Reminds me of 1984
