Heavy Hangs The Bandwidth That Torrents The Crown – Andy Ihnatko’s Celestial Waste of Bandwidth (BETA)

Standard

Andy Ihnatko’s follow-up to the Oatmeal comic is worth a read.

Here’s the terms of use for commercial content: you have to pay for this stuff. This means either you need to wait for it to become commercially available, or if you torrent it today you need to buy it when it gets released. So long as you buy it as soon as it’s possible to do so, I can confidently reach for my “No Harm Done” rubber stamp. Some content is commercially unavailable because the publisher or distributor has no desire to ever release it. I’ll even go so far as to say that downloading it illegally is a positive thing; you’re helping to keep this creative work alive.
