    You're right, having your house broken into and having things stolen isn't piracy. It's theft which is different to copyright infringement.

    And it's got nothing to do with the Police not caring, copyright infringement is a civil matter and therefore is not dealt with by the Police.

    Where did I say that?? However the fact that software/code can constitute property doesn't alter the fact that piracy is copyright infringement rather than theft.

    you still have to consider that in the console world, most of the people with modded xbox's have also unmodded ones, and most that download pirated games, also buy the legit one in the end, now in the pc world how many people who downloaded the pirated version but the legit one in the end? my guess is not that many..

    QFT.

    end of story.

    no, seriously, there's nothing can be done until the developers and the industry give in and code brilliant games for free even if they have to live as a hobo.... and THEN the consumers will be satisfied.

    sorry, but it's only our human nature.
