Don’t Copy That Floppy!

A friend of mine sent me a link to this video the other day, and I just had to post it here.

I write software for a living, so I don’t at all support piracy, but this thing is just hilarious. Rampant piracy still exists, and yet people still write new and more expensive (to produce) computer games. Anyway, it’s worth a watch.

Also, it made me go dig up this old button that I was sure I still had:


I’m fairly sure I got that at PC EXPO 1990-something. Crazy.

what’s even better is that I remember the librarian sitting us down during elementary school and making us watch this video. After we watched it I approached her and expressed concern because my dad was installing one copy of windows on all the computers in the house and I wanted to know if he was going to be arrested for it… hahahaha

I know! Let’s make a video to prevent piracy! We’ll have a rap guy in it. Kids love the rap guys! And let’s make it forty-seven hours long!
