For me, if something's not available for purchase anywhere (at a reasonable price), then I'm fine with piracy.
This is usually where I land. If there’s not a viable alternative than you can’t be blamed all that much. I think it’s where most folks land as well.
I remember some time ago, and please don’t ask me to dig up the article, Game of Thrones was the most pirated show, and it was a sizeable gap between GoT and the second place show (Breaking Bad maybe?). The big difference between GoT and the next show was that you couldn’t purchase individual episodes of GoT. You either had to buy the HBO package or miss out entirely. What happened when you could get individual episodes? Well the show’s piracy rate plummeted. Most people would rather pay for a thing than bother with bit torrent and potential viruses. When the item is scarce or too expensive, however, that changes. Of course, I may be entirely mistaken and making stuff up. So if that’s the case, someone feel free to correct me.
reggielutz: @johiay: lol it was a bar in Mountaintop PA. Currently the Mountaintop Pub and Eatery. I wasn't around at all when they filmed there but I just heard about it. And I didn't see the episode but it aired last night. My brain just went, "Whaaaat!?!"

reggielutz: Does anyone over here remember a song with the lyric "Alan Moore knows the score"? Not the Pop Will Eat Itself song though, that's not the one that's in my head.
