Pirates, Batman, Gun and Rogue

Pirates, there are many pirates. Software, music, literary pirates. Almost everything can be pirated. I had some discussions regarding this issue. One of the reasons why piracy is rampant: Economics. Most the people who buy/download pirated things said that it's about the price.

The original CDs/DVDs are very expensive.

Why do I have to buy the original if I can download it?

These are some of their reasons. Indeed, the price of the original discs are very costly especially for rank and file employees like me. The cost of the albums by foreign artists is between 400 to 500 pesos. And the DVDs, from 600 to 900 pesos. Some people might snap, then why do you want to buy that discs/movies if you can't afford it? Uhhmm, because television sucks? Because even rank and file people can 'digest' it? I think the industry (music/film) are already working out to lower the costs. I saw some original (foreign) albums with only the discs (sans the booklets). those are priced at around 250 pesos. Not bad at all. But will they lower it? Maybe.

I already finished reading the Batman titles I mentioned before. Very nice read. The TPBs are worth collecting. By the way, here is a picture of my TM Samurai Edge. Finally, here is a preview of a new SUV from Nissan.
