I remember explaining to a very confused classmate that piracy was bad and it was stealing. I remember getting very frustrated because he could not seem to grasp what I was saying, It seemed odd to me that he had no idea that he was stealing intellectual property. “How could he have not known?”, I was asking myself the whole time.
Turns out, most everyone in this country either do not know, do not care, or do not bother to think about it. Having a parent whose work dabbled in IP, I was not part of that majority. Having lived with random lectures on the topic and a strict no pirated rule in our house, I grew to understand and care about this issue.
