the point is dismissing piracy as a victimless crime. no goods are lost, no sales are lost, nothing is lost so it's ok!!! that's what people think

only thing lost is the effort of the repairman, game dev in piracy's case

That's making the assumption that everyone deserves compensation for everything they do. Which is just not true. I wish I got payed whenever I exert myself...

so if your boss suddenly decided you don't deserve compensation for working you would be perfectly fine with that? riiiiiiiiight

He's agreed to pay me for when I work at a certain time and a certain place. No agreement has been made between the dev and the one playing their game sans purchase.


The agreement is there. Just like you didn't speak to the cashier or owner when picking up that meat loaf but you still go and pay for it. It's called being a citizen instead of a cynical jerk.

So you're saying the devs made a game, sent you a free copy, and you aren't paying? Why did they send you a free copy?

more like you got that copy and didn't pay for it, just like the repairman didn't just show up at your doorstep, you called him in

Again, you're missing things. I won't even address your descent into physical goods above.

If you call the repairman in, you've established the sale. The repairman works for you specifically. This is an entirely different situation. A theoretical purchase versus blatant theft of time and effort.

You can do that, but then he won't be repairing for you anymore. Doesn't really work that way with game devs, since they aren't performing a service for you, and can't refuse you from stealing their games.

So let's say he tightened the bolts of the plumbing in the entire apartment, every tenant has to pay his share, but you don't pay yours. Repairman didn't work for you specifically, and you still shafted him, just like with piracy.
