Dear Piracy Apologists: Downloading Unreleased Films Is Not Cool

While I know this topic is a hornet nest, it's still fun to stir it every once in a while. stick out tongue

Despite my frustration at not being able to see "Boyhood" when I wanted to, I never once considered torrenting it. Not because it was an indie film, because I admire Linklater, or because it may actually be hard to find a high-quality leak. But because it is simply not cool to decide that just because I can -- just because some form of media exists out there in the world -- that I deserve to have it, now and for free.
