Okay, it's not easy to do. That still doesn't justify piracy, or entitle you to something for free that the rest of the world has to pay for.You haven't understood me. It's not that I don't feel comfortable using credit card. It's the fact that it's not easiest thing to do from huge part of the world.
I wasn't looking at the situation purely from a U.S. perspective. I was looking at it from an ethical point of view. Piracy isn't justified just because you don't feel comfortable using your credit card somewhere; it doesn't entitle you to things for free no matter where you live, no matter who you are, and no matter what your means consist of.
I'll grant you that software is indeed different from a physical product, and must be treated differently in some ways. But then, I don't agree that the definition of piracy or theft should be any different when it comes to software. If a company spends lots of time and money developing software, and they choose to ask people to pay for it, then you must then decide whether or not you want to pay their price. If you can't or won't, then you shouldn't be using their software, the product of their labor, simple as that.
And your ethical point of view is US ethical point of view. And industrial point of view. You can't compare physical product with software in every single aspect. It's a whole new concept that needs new laws and ethical codes separated than what we used for past couple millennias.
