    Although I do not think it is right to pirate apps, I also think that it is not right for devs to take peoples ID numbers. The Devs really are not losing money from pirates, but just not making as much money, and they are still making money. Piracy will be around as long as software that costs money is around. There really is no way to stop it.

    so it's ok to steal? and the devs are wrong to take the names of people that are stealing from them?

    People think that if it's digital it's different. If you go into a store and steal a ton of stuff, is it not right for the store owner to take a picture if you?

    THERE IS A COMPLETE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FILE SHARING AND ACTUALLY STEALING.
    DO YOUR RESEARCh.
    IN STEALING SOMEONE IS LOSING MONEY BECAUSE THE PRODUCT IS MADE, IN FILE SHARING NO ONE IS LOSING MONEY, PEOPLE JUST ARENT MAKING AS MUCH MONEY. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE.
