Have you ever gone to your favorite restaurant, ordered a dish you love, enjoyed every single bite and walked out without paying? Like most law-abiding citizens, you probably haven’t. Presumably because it is a crime to steal.
Similar to dining, we all love to be entertained. Whether it is a blockbuster movie or a TV series, the quest to find great entertainment has led many to turn to alternative sources. Illegal sources.
The rise of content piracy and illegal streaming means people are essentially enjoying every single moment and walking out without paying. This has negative consequences on everyone involved, including you.
