I talked with one guy about games piratism (=copying/distributing/using illegal copies of games). One of the arguments he made: “If I don’t buy legal copy, the big company won’t lose that much money”. He also pointed out that he wanted to support small studios.
But it strike to me like… basically he was saying that it would be okay to steal from rich.
Like, if there’s some millionaire it would be okay to steal 1000 or 10 000 euros from him “because he is so rich that it wouldn’t matter that much to him”. When I presented it this way he said “Well, I know what you mean but…”.
Why is it “okay” to steal digital products, but it’s not okay to steal money from rich guys?
