Software Piracy has been a gateway for many people into the world of making music, but is it ever justified given the companies livelihoods at stake? Benn Jordan investigates the mixed up world of piracy, how its reported, and the implications it has for all concerned. Remember the days of file sharing sites like limewire and scour where such programs could be found? See the full list of sites here.

In what is a tremendously well researched video, Benn puts piracy in context across a range of software releases, with examples in all kinds of markets. It's another in depth exploration from Benn who we reported had tried to find the loudest sound possible! More videos form his channel here:
