we don't have original copies of some shakespearean plays because they didn't publish them out of fear other theaters would steal them. other theaters stole them anyway by going to official productions and trying to copy them down. for some plays these "bad quartos" are the only copies we have. the original version of copyright enforcement destroying valuable history and pirates saving it. video games will be remembered the same way.
Piracy is the only Ethical alternative. @nogaku
