The piracy thing will never be answered here, the venue for that is the Courts. Can we just park it .

 

 

 

I don't personally have much time of the day for the off-topic rantings by Ockel and Rikkitic. But on this issue there actually isn't a debate: legally, piracy isn't theft. "Theft" is very specifically defined under the Crimes Act. One of the required elements is the thieve must intend to permanently deprive the owner of the property or interest in it. That doesn't fit with piracy.

 

What the status of copyright infringement is philosophically speaking, I have my own views. But the risk of igniting another boring, off-topic debate by Ockel and Rikkitic isn't worth it.

 

 

But you just did. Parking it, would mean not raising the comment in the first place. 

 

So lets park it now.

Thanks I did quickly google UFC vs HFC but all I got back were links to Fight Club websites!

 

So I dont live in a dual UFB/HFC area so I guess it wont matter how loud I yell and scream, no SkyTV/Fibre for me.

My burning question for the week is way more vital, brown shoes or black shoes for dinner.
