Its still a pretty penny for the LT version..and I dont have that kind of
money. I have a friend that got a free copy off newsgroups, the same way Im
doing it now. So I find nothing wrong with it. Lt or not.
In order to become a criminal I would have to have been in front of a judge,
happily I have never had that experience, neither have I stolen anything.
Calling me a criminal without knowing the facts or indeed anything about me
just shows everyone what a bloated, self opinionated prick you really are.
My message to you initially was to show that instead of being judgmental you
merely had to be polite and refer the unfortunate gentleman out of this
group into another that will satisfy his needs.
Because of your judgemental atttidude, you are obviously covering for the
fact that you are a despicable depraved child molester, hiding under the
guise of righteous indignation!
Now do you see how stupid statements in print can reveal how irrelevant YOUR
1. making a copy for yourself that you own was NOT the question.
2. "Stealing" a copy was the question.
3. "You Americans" is another way of saying that Americans are more moral
than your country.
Ahh! I see CW couldn't resist, name calling aside, read the facts and learn,
you may be a CAD master for all I know, but you don't appear to have much
common sense or indeed intellect, maybe you are just hiding it to try and
make yourself appear more honest and oh, more moral.
aberration indeed! Yeah, like 260million of us!
Thank you for the impaired justification for stealing.
You have no concept of copyright laws, American or international.
You seem never to have read the licensing "AGREEMENT" of most software.
You wouldn't know what it said anyway, much less observe same.
Many, not all, agreements limit you to one computer, much less a friends
computer, hence corporate licenses.
but American laws don't mean diddly in most countries, whatever gave you the
idea that other countries look to one of the youngest (and whackyist)
nations on the planet for legal standards, most of the same world
positively laughs at your legal system. The International copyright system
is only a loose agreement between nations, most of it would take high court
action (mucho dollars) to find a settlement and has never been won against
an individual unless the individual is making money out of it. The little
guy has a greater profile in law than his USA counterpart (lets call that
freedom) in your country the mighty dollar wins evertime, the same cannot
be said in many others.
an agreement is a two way contract between two or more people, it is not an
agreement in anywhere but the USA when someone is holding a gun to you head
and ordering you around---DUH!
Americans think is a law, some greedy shithead Lawyer puts together a load
of words which removes every natural right and makes you check the box
before it lets you install, THAT simply put, will not hold as an agreement
in law in most countries mentioned. Unlike the USA we have many laws to
protect us from these tyrant corporations, consumers have all the rights!
The individual would only be breaking the law if he SOLD the software. In
most countries, if you buy it, its YOURS! including the right to tranfer and
use as many times on different machines as you want (its YOURS) and giving a
copy to friends (however many) to use has far as I know has never been
challenged let alone won in any court in Canada, Great Britain, France,
Germany, Holland, Sweden etc. etc.
We are going nowhere with this because you have your 'American' head on, I
have my European head on, simply put, this is only an argument because you
Americans think you are the only ones that count and therefore gives you the
right to be judgemental. what you all don't realise is, the rest of the
world has its middle finger up and in unison chanting 'fuck you' whether you
like it or not! If you don't want to argue all the time then don't be so
judgemental in a public place.
Before you even go there, calling this group an American only autocad group
will bring the wrath of the rest of the world, usenet is not owned by
Why steal somthing when you can download a free copy of IntelliCAD ;
It will do more than Lt and you can't tell the difference between that and
AutoCAD before you need Solids.
