#488: Steal This Comic

Steal This Comic

Thinking of buying from audible.com or iTunes?

Remember, if you pirate something, it’s yours for life. You can take it anywhere and it will always work.

[[There is a flowchart whose paths are (You’re a Criminal)<-Pirate<-(Buy or Pirate)->Buy->(Things Change)->(You Try to Recover Your Collection)->(You’re a Criminal)]]

But if you buy DRM-locked media, and you ever switch operating systems or new technology comes along, your collection could be lost.

And if you try to keep it, you’ll be a criminal (DMCA 1201).

So remember: if you want a collection you can count on, PIRATE IT.

Hey, you’ll be a criminal either way.

(If you don’t like this, demand DRM-free files)
