Its funny that it got labelled piracy like how pirates used to sail up to poor defenseless ships, forcefully board them and then copy the entire ship and sail away with the copy leaving the original ship to go on its way.

Theft removes the original
Piracy makes a copy
@kankervantas I think you are describing copyright infringement which is not piracy. It doesn't involve violence and taking things. The copyright industry wanted to make it sound as bad as killing people but we don't need to keep using that term.
@2ck its from the book The Octalysis Framework.
its somewhat nested. 1% of the total population buys boosters (whales), 10% of the total population buys at least one thing (ex. they’ll buy the game in the first place), 90% of the total population freeloads.
the numbers are from the free-to-play market.
@kankervantas then what? Sure it's not theft, but how do you resolve the livelihood problem?
