Shoplifters Will Be Prosecuted

TorrentFreak doesn’t like my attitude towards piracy.

Here’s their justification for theft.

There is no doubt that adult clips are widely shared on the Internet, especially via BitTorrent. Approximately 5% of all files being shared on public BitTorrent trackers are adult content, and most of these files are copyrighted. On top of that, sites such as Empornium, PureTnA and Cheggit solely focus on sharing porn, and are among the most popular private BitTorrent trackers on the Internet.

Here’s my response.

I know you guys are real savvy with you torrents and tube sites, you could probably get away with never paying for porn again. But you know what’ll happen then? The big companies will take their big tits and go home. Then you’ll be stuck with free tube sites chock full of poorly rendered re-runs and the worst in amateur offerings.

Back from England, happy to be driving on the right/correct side of the road again :)

    Ron, I hear what you’re saying, and agree. But most of us think that big company produced porn is of shocking poor quality and shockingly non-erotic.

    Don’t get me wrong — I grew up with you, and I am a big fan of yours. But porn has become sometimes technical/mechanical, and almost always sterile. My preferences these days are for an obviously hand held camera shooting two girls (or whatever), bad home-quality filming, unpracticed and awkward. Don’t want to see think perfect girls with hairspray and makeup. I don’t even want the pretense of a plot. I wanna see real ordinary people doing wild and kinky stuff.

    When I watch modern porn, I can never suspend the knowledge that I’m watching a movie. I’m not in the action. I can’t daydream that it’s happening in front of me. I can’t lose myself in the sexual action.

    I think many others feel similarly, and it makes pornos cheap, in quality. When something is cheap it becomes easier to copy en masse without thinking about the consequences or whom your hurting. This forms the basis of the argument that the people who generally download bittorrents are the people who wouldn’t have been a sale anyhow.

    Anyhow.

    Can’t believe I’m posting a comment on your blog. Awesome. I feel like I grew up with you.
