So, what would you as a student do if the CD didn't exist ?
in reply to Re: Software piracy- what would you do?
in thread Software piracy- what would you do?
Would you photocopy one of the books ?
If you personally can't afford the book/CD, you should persuade
whatever institution you study at to purchase it for their library
and then borrow it from the library for the time that you
need it like any other book.
Just because it is easy to make the CD available on a web site doesn't make it any
less of an offence than copying the pages of a book.
Would you consider it OK for me scan in "Learning Perl" (or any other book) and make
that available on a web site ? - it is just the same IMHO.
