What a smart person would engage in to avoid paying exorbitant prices for 2-hour long heavily edited videos(movies) or the overpriced windows operating system. Pirates shouldn't feel bad, as their money would have gone to some megacorporation worth a few hundred billion dollars, or a millionaire living in Beverly Hills. Piracy ranges from using YouTube-to-mp3 to starting a torrenting site like the Pirate Bay. It also has a subreddit at r/piracy.
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me
We pillage plunder, we rifle and loot
Drink up me 'earties, yo ho
We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot
Drink up me 'earties, yo ho
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me

Since I had to include the word: piracy

The best thing ever to happen to the music/software industry. The customer's way of telling the corporate whore fatcats that they're charging us too much for low-quality shit.
RIAA should just ralize it's hopeless to stop piracy as long as it supports shitty, no-talent MTV karaoke lipsynchers like NSYNC.

Something that enables millions of people to learn and use software you would *never* have bought for the retail price. Something people in the sw industry don't take into account...
My productivity has increased two-fold thanks to this software

Old usage: the act of sailing around on a huge boat with a bunch of other guys (all of whom most likely are missing either one of their legs, hands, or eyes) and raiding spanish galleons up and down whatever coast you happen to be on. This action usually involves a lot of town pillaging, treasure looting, booty stealing, cutlass weilding, ARRR! yelling, parrot having, musket shooting, rum drinking, accordion playing, cannon cannoning, and buggery.

New usage: the act of stealing music, movies, unlicensed software, etc off of the internet. Usually done through a variety of p2p clients. This practice is of course denounced by the industry and they have launched a campaign of legal action and anti-piracy media featuring the likes of M E Hart aimed at destroying piracy, but all indications as of now are that it will survive.

In both cases, piracy is awesome.
Up with piracy!

Becoming a very serious crime according to authorities because they aren't getting any money out of it unless you're a cop or something. If the authorities made a dollar for every pirated thing they'd shut up and direct our attention to reducing citizen benefits because they don't make any money out of it either.
Piracy is a crime because the government doesn't get any money out of it.
