Talking about technology with my doctor he said that one of the things that pissed him off is the people pirating textbooks because they are enjoying of the work and guts of others. He argues that most of them don’t even graduate because what is free is worthless, they end not studying. He said that in the future, specially now with Trump, some things will change and the govt. will start a war against copyright infringement, not only uploaders will be arrested but downloaders too because they already have some big database of pirates from various p2p swarms for example.
Can it really happen Everybody will be sued, one by one?
Why is the academic circle so anti-piracy?
