I pirate music, and usually buy it when I know my cash goes directly to the artist.

I pirate books because I like to have a shitton of books with me at all time. I know I can give them to anyone because it's data. And if something is really good, I'm not against buying it.

I pirate movies, because let's be honest, a lot of movies sucks, theatres are expensive, and why would i have to schedule myself to see something that will be available later in a more convinient way?

I pirate games, because I'm in retro-gaming and indies. I'd rather give cash to a bunch of small teams making great games, and spend time showing hidden retro gems to friends than spending time on the latest AAA game.
