Wasn't there a loophole whereby if you could prove you owned the dvd and said you had it on pre-order you would get away with it?

I agree entirely - I never download games apart from football manager for pc - and that's only because I hate the drm on it - I have over 300 DVDs now of the films I like, and those I don't normally end up in fed for next to nothing - yes I've downloaded a few films in my time, mostly from megaupload/rapidshare etc - I only use torrents for tv shows and occasionally music though spotify premium does the job for me

nobody in the uk has been prosecuted for illegal downloading as far as i'm aware, and the reason is if you have a unsecure connection anyone could use your ip address to download so they cannot prove you did it.There was a law firm sending out standard letters getting people to pay £200 'or face the consequences', but think that firm got into a bit of trouble for it as it was basically a scam to scare and extract a bit of cash out of people.

when they stop paying people (idiots) ridiculous amounts like 10 million for 1 movie then i may find it acceptable to pay for movies

until then ill carry on with my disproportional fleecing of the movie industry

how much do you pay generally then?

boothy

how much do you pay generally then?

I pay Sweet F-all,are you OK with that ?
I sometimes buy dvd's if they are worth the price like 5 disc Planet earth £7.99
Still game 6 Seasons £9.99
Sopranos 6 Seasons £19.99

If I see a advert with some millionaire actress, actor or singer saying Piracy is killing the industry please stop doing it,then it makes me want to download even more for Free.

Other than you missing Boothy's dig, by your own definition you're an idiot as you pay for DVDs (regardless of how cheap they are) when you could download them free.

You know you can download at 1:1 to quality? I mean an idiot wouldn't know that but everyone else would.

Sync issues? Is the year 2005 again?

Samples - Part of the video uploaded with the main video that allows you to check quality.
Comments - people's opinion of the file posted on the site you download from.
Crap sites - The ones your using it seems
Buying - Only what an idiot does...

definitely stick to buying

Samples- That not all up-loaders included & any way you can also use VLC.
Comments- I always read like most people do.
Crap sites- Like Demonoid & piratebay are fine for me.
Buying-You still can't possibly get the same quality & so your typing chit in this thread.

WTF!

Don't download Bluray due to the Films being like 25gb each & my server(talktalk) would cap my erse.
I stopped burning to disc years ago & instead move films strait from PC to Media player.
Also use uTorrent & seed 1:1.(that makes me a good boy)

So what is better than Demonoid ??? (got a big grin on my face)

torrentday ftw!

1:1 wasn't reference to your seeding ratio.

Your server talktalk??? You mean ISP????

Most people on here don't burn to disc either, most of us have servers and media players of some sort and we're still playing full DVDs or BluRays no problem at the same quality of store bought originals.

LoL @ Demonoid.

You are entertaining.
