On one hand they attack BitTorrent sites and file sharers, and on the other they have made millions out of ripped off songs, movie plots and in recent times even posters.

Some might scream and haggle over the nuances of the terms copy, inspiration, rip-off, remake, etc. but one ought to put a bit of perspective into the debate when millionaire celebrities attack the common man for sharing.

  1. Hypocrisy is part of the human nature… i remember such examples from even the RIAA/MPAA members… and I see it all over the place around, for example photographers screaming someone is stealing their work, while the pictures were edited with a pirated Photoshop.

    • I personally know many people who will never shell out a penny for a copy of Windows or a movie DVD, but will staunchly defend the idea of proprietary software, hardware region encoding, etc..
