- and its not the stealing bit thats good its the message it sends that ppl wont just tolerate anything without protest and besides evading giving them the money and still getting the product, face it.. groups like EEF has about as much impact on corporate greed as a bananafly would have if it crashed into the empire state building.. and no.. many things you DONT have a choice of to buy or not to buy if you want to remain within the modern society.. if you THINK a bit you will know thats true, now you can ofcourse move to a buddhist temple in mongolia far from anything digital.. but people just dont see that as reasonable.Originally Posted by Kwyjibo77
-MOVE TO NORWAY! prices on games here are usually in the 499-599nok range.. and 90$ is approx 581nok some ven 649 or 699 depending on how "popular" they are and norway isnt the only country getting raped on prices..Originally Posted by Kwyjibo77
-YEA, but the thing is certain companies have lobbied in certain laws that means you not only get the VAT, the custom handling fees and import tax but a pentalty tax for threatening local sales.. its the same deal with DVD and CD and Games but soft like photoshop gets a much bigger penalty as its well not something every consumer would buy..oh and those laws werent the idea of our lawmakers but lobbying pricks who works for the record and movie industry.. the ONLY way of getting photoshop in through the mail would be to get the shipper to send it as a gift with 0 value.. but you know what.. thats actually illegal too.. I tried the webshop but they wont actually let me buy it purely digital without shipping it as well and thus totally ruining the benefit of a download..Originally Posted by Kwyjibo77

- well the thing is that iTunes in eurpope doesnt cost 99 cents... also the selection in itunes compared to the US is quite slim..in case you havent been following the news recenty.. the record companies thinks 0.99$ is too low (oh and 0.99$ is not the same as 0.99£ or 0.99€)Originally Posted by Kwyjibo77
basically.. you're totally out of touch with reality..
if the industry stopped raping consumers because they want to make an unrealistic amount of profit for pushing bad movies and music and discriminating against customers.. who knows might happen.. if we as europeeans didnt have to wait 3 months for Serenity to get to cinemas here (prolly wont until AFTER the HDTV version and DVDR's have appeared on usenet or bittorrent or whatever) its no suprise that ppl download.. we are sick of getting left out of everything and if you love DRM and DMCA and total rape of consumer rights, then move to USA..
