    whats the difference between downloading and buying second hand goods

    on a piracy issue.
    they say performers artists game designers lose out etc when you download a game/ tune but don't they also lose out if you buy a second hand one?
    or am i missing out on something

    If it is second hand then they get the money from the original purchase so at least making something. If someone downloads illegally then they don't see a penny

    If you buy it secondhand...then someone has already bought it firsthand- so no one loses.

    If you buy secondhand some has already paid the manufacturer for it.

    A downloaded item doesn't necessarily have to ever have been paid for.

    There's also the point that if you buy secondhand from Game then the industry is benefitting. Plus people trading games will usually use the money to buy another game, so publishers benefit there.
