Seriously, this is pretty terrible.
At any rate, I enjoyed RIP: A Remix Manifesto. However, after being preached to for an hour-and-a-half about how everything deserves to be shared, I couldn’t help but think about how many pirates out there don’t share. How they would gladly flock to this “remix manifesto” with a self-righteous fervor that is entirely hypocritical. I don’t have any numbers to back this up, but I would strongly suspect that most people who pirate things are not doing so with any intention of remixing or contributing back to society in any way.
They just want free stuff. We all want free stuff.
But is that really a good reason to pirate things? To be honest, I don’t think it is.
