Piracy Is O.K. If You Are Poor
By now, most people in this country know piracy is illegal and you must pay full price for your retail software, games, music and movies. If you live in a country with lax copyright laws and you make $150 a month, piracy is okay. Seems fair.
You say you can't afford the $699 price tag on Adobe Photoshop CS4? How about a $698 discount? That's the kind of deal you'll get here in Hanoi, where pirated software--and virtually any other kind of digital content--is sold indiscriminately at many local shops for about $15,000 dong (90 cents) per DVD, or half of that for a CD.
