I believe that this may be in violation of copyright laws.

Better to have the real thing at night, and not take money away from the people that worked on it.

Yes, and definitely morally wrong. Putting the offer in writing in a permanent place with contact info ---:foreheadslap:

Cue a moderator in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ... :rules:

Seriously, it's amazing that some folks don't have an understanding that this sort of thing is wrong.

For the OP, here's a good summary: Copyright Infringement

I'd much rather pay for it and have it in print, in front of me.
See CJK's post above..... 100%

It's not just against the rules here; it's against U.S. and international law. You can, in theory, be imprisoned for things like that. There have been a number of very well publicized recent cases of people being hit with preposterous fines, to the tune of millions of dollars. Not that I agree with those fines, mind you ... but that's a whole different matter.
