“I have a profit around $200,000 (after taxes $75.58)”
Louis CK is selling a professionally produced show for $5 with no DRM or regional restrictions. Success.
I steal content when I’m not allowed to buy it legally. If I can, I make the effort to connect through a proxy to buy some music, or change the country setting of my phone to buy an app, but if it takes more than 5 minutes to work around some stupid rules, I’ll just get the torrent.
