    As a fellow artist, this is why I have a subscription to emusic.com, my credit card on file with iTunes, and my credit card on file with gmail/youtube to pay for movies I want to watch.

    It all adds up to less than $15/month...small price to pay for contributing to the artists who spent their entire lives perfecting their art for our enjoyment.

    Piracy is more than just illegal - It's a slap in the face to the people who've dedicated their lives to making our lives more enjoyable.

    China is quickly catching up with the US. Give it another generation or so, and China will mirror the US with piracy laws (and labor laws). icon_wink.gif
