“The "pirates" are part of my community. Not
everyone in the community has equal means.
Pirates are not cretins riddled with immoral
behavior in every part of their life. These are all
generally good people who would gladly support
me, their friendly local neighborhood artist, if they
could easily afford it. They can't now, but they will
be able to some day... I give them something now,
and they will give me something later.”

“Last, and most important, as soon as I opened
everything up, our business has grown and grown.
Our team now of about 10 people are happy and
everything is proﬁtable. It is strange to see a chart
over time that shows an increase in revenues and
an increase in piracy. Now, piracy is not the
reason that revenues are increasing, but they are
not hurting revenues. .”
