If your reading this article, it's highly likely that you love movies. I love movies as well. I go to the theater almost every week. I have a Blu-Ray collection. I have posters, merchandise, etc. I felt that since I bought all of these products and supported Hollywood very well, what I did was justified. It's not.
What it really is, is stealing. It's the same as walking to Best Buy and stealing a Blu-Ray copy of the film. I thought downloading films for free was harmless, and didn't affect anyone. Hint: it does. A study done in 1999 estimated that over 109,000 jobs were lost due to video game and movie's downloaded illegally. Also, $12 Billion in Revenue was taken from the studios due to Piracy. It may seem harmless, but it effect's the lives of Families everywhere.
Overall, I am very sorry about the films I have downloaded illegally. It is stealing and morally wrong. I will never steal again.
