Piracy is the art of legally copying software by not paying to the creators which can help decrease greed in the world.
Companies who make claims that they own software by copyrights are only showing that they follow laws set down by other humans rather than by accepting the laws of the universe that all objects are owned by no one; rather items and objects are subjected to the greater area called the universe where they are subjected to the path of the universe.
Piracy is highly illegal, though it does not contradict the Five pillars of pirating. People who are caught committing piracy are often tried in court or sometimes forced to walk the plank without a fair trial. Pirates will entice naive college students with promises of high bandwidth, which usually works for the first few downloads, but after a week, it takes a year to download one kilobyte. How this happens is unknown, and the RIAA and MPAA certainly have nothing to do with it.
Piracy is a gateway crime. It has been scientifically proven that youngsters who commit piracy are much more likely to commit murder.
Politicians often refer to robbery committed at sea as “piracy.” In this way, they imply that robbery committed at sea is ethically equivalent to illegal copying.
If you don't believe that robbery committed at sea is just like copyright infringement, you might prefer not to use the word “piracy” to describe it. Neutral terms such as “prohibited partying” or “unauthorized theft” are available for use instead. Some of us might even prefer to use a positive term such as “sharing horror with your neighbor.”
One particular form of piracy exists which concerns a number of different patents that Bill Gates has on various aspects of the human body. He registered these upon birth to protect what was rightfully his (though some people say he got the idea for his head from an apple he saw in the maternity ward). As a consequence, all people born with the regular number of any particular feature must pay Microsoft royalties to compensate them for lost earnings. However, some unscrupulous types try to avoid this by using a technique known as “pirating oneself”, which involves dressing as a pirate in order to give the impression of having fewer than the standard amount of a particular feature, for example by wearing a fake wooden leg, hooked hand replacement or eye patch. Anyone found to be doing this is thrown in the brig and must pay Microsoft a fine of twenty gold doubloons.
