Now, I understand that this issue has come to the forefront many times before, but I feel the need to bring it up, once again.
Here’s the truth…I am tired of hearing authors such as my human one, complain about their works being pirated.
Uploading a book or two onto the internet may not seem like a big deal to you, but for someone who tries to make a living at it, it is more than just uploading a book, it is stealing money right out of their pockets.
Why does this issue bother me? Apart from constantly hearing about it? Because, it shows me the decline of human morality.
I remember the days when bartering was considered a way of life. When stealing from someone was done face-to-face (granted, they typically wore a bandana to cover their faces), but it was done on a personal level.
Now-a-days, everything is on the sly. Hidden behind usernames and websites that help promote this type of cowardness and I have no respect for cowards.
If you insist on stealing someone’s work, grow a backbone and show yourself. Put your real name and address out there for everyone to see.
If you cannot do that, then perhaps, you shouldn’t steal from them.
Take it or leave it, there’s my two cents about how this technological generation has created cowards.
