"torrenting a game is the same as stealing it, it's a lost sale"
that's great news, now I can set up a server farm to pirate J.K. Rowling's new Harry Potter game and repeatedly delete and redownload it until i bankrupt her
@fariparedes if you copy a game, the electrons will fall out of it, reducing its dollar value. games are like bitcoins.
@fariparedes do it. I dare you.
@fariparedes I’m all for it, there seems to be precedent lol
a server farm might be excessive

@carcinopithecus yeah but I want to bankrupt JK Rowling NOW
