Yes, I don’t think that people should be put in jail for many years for pirating, but I do still think that it is wrong. The people that make the games do a lot of work, and usually don’t want people stealing their games. Here’s some of the funniest ways of stopping pirates…
Piracy accounts for 31 percent of all Internet traffic and, regardless of your personal opinion on the issue, it really does suck for a lot of game developers. But rather than just try to sue the pants off of everyone who ever logs into Bittorrent, some have started thinking outside the box a little.

I do think that these are some very interesting ways to stop pirates, it appears that many of these worked well, although on occasion a legitimate player got hit with one of these. In my opinion, the best way to stop piracy is to teach people why it’s bad, such as the fact that the game companies need money to make new games, if you pirate a game, or any other software program for that matter, you will see games and programs that aren’t as good as they could be.
