the uk government is a waste of time... no one would bother listening to a word they say except they have bully boys.

You are not able to buy most (if not all) of these games since they are no longer available. You can always try your chance to get them from ebay by paying up to 1000$ (!).

Even the copyright owners or the programmers themselves usually don't have their own games. Some of those copyright owners are not aware that they hold the copyright to xxx Amiga game. :)

Did they arrest any Amiga user for downloading and playing the WHDLOAD version of Superfrog?

To each his own, but I personally think anyone making money off someone elses work is scum.
Piracy is one thing, but making money off other peoples work is the act of a low life.

As for the arguement that a lot of this stuff is no longer produced, ergo ok to steal and resell,.... man, Id love an indivision aga,... who has one I can steal? It's ok 'cos theyre not made anymore  :P Maybe a few a4k's and sx32 pros would be nice as well,... heck theyve not been produced for 15 years,.... its gotta be ok. I could probably make a pretty penny for my troubles too :)

Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

These sellers are selling their CF hard disks at a price of nearly double the market price.

So you're saying that kidnapping and having sex with an 8 year old isn't illegal unless you're caught?  Tell that to the judge.


If a judge is involved then it's probably safe to assume that they've been caught.

sad part of this story is the actual science for this is that there isnt a computer or console in the world that doesnt have some kind of pirated software onit ,not 1.
 
and the other facts are most companys that trade or have traded in amiga gear have all sold illegal software thats a fact.
 
and also what cheeses me off is there worried about donks selling crap sftware cheap , im worried about the crap software that is allowed to be written by companys and installed on my pc without my knowledge ie
yeildmanager and the likes now when is the goverments going to make this an offence ,and tracking cookies made by comanys to spy on what we are buying and doing on the net .
 
they wont because the goverments are allowed to be pirates and steal my stuff and be nosy.
 
so i say fair game challenge my findings and ill prove im right.
 
take me to court and ill stitch you the goverment and all the software makers .
 
keep off my land. being my pc thanks.
