Piracy is stealing. Stealing is a crime.
In the wise, wise words of Derek “Pulis ako” Ramsey: “Piracy is stealing, stealing is a crime.” Piracy is not only bad, it is against the law! RA 8293 or the Intellectual Property Code imposes not only fines but also jail time to offenders!
Buying pirated movies ruins the film industry
Since piracy is stealing, catering to pirated products equates to enriching these thieves who profit from other people’s work. This means less profit and less returns to the original filmmakers. Buying pirated movies rob people of the credit for their work and in effect this practice discourages filmmaking. The saddest part: it is usually those up and coming directors who need more support and funding who are affected.
