Subject: Intellectual Property laws for games are terrible and need to be completely redone. What do you think?
Intellectual property laws were made with items such as books or movies in mind. Those are items that can be much more easily obtained. With books, those stay mostly timeless, and continue to be printed for long years after their author has gone the way of the dodo. With movies, you are obviously in a much tougher position when it comes to some more obscure titles, but usually, the movie you seek should be available on DVD/Blu-Ray or wherever.
Video games are a much tougher nut to crack, for many reasons.
They require specific hardware to play. With PC, many old games run on modern OS' with no fixes required. However, good luck trying to play a PS3 disc on a PS5. Obviously, emulation is an option, but even so, you need the original disc to dump the game and emulate it on your computer. Otherwise, that falls under piracy. So if we are staying legal, you always need the original disc, unless you dumped it as soon as you got your hands on it.
The DRM can be tricky with video games. And if you decide to breach the DRM, that probably also falls under piracy.
Video games age more quickly. I love older games, especially those from the 2nd half of the '90s/fist half of the '00s. However, I think we can agree that games age much faster than books or movies. My point is, if that's the only way to legally obtain it, I feel unsure about spending crazy money to get an old game that's out of print and has not been released digitally, and will have been used by someone for many years.
Video games, especially from before the era of digital distribution, tend to fall in legal limbos very easily. For instance, when 2 companies own the rights to the game, and they aren't bothered to resolve them, because they don't see much profit in an older title.
IP laws for video games should be completely redone. My suggestions? 1. If a game has not been released for digital distribution for, say, 12 years, it becomes part of public domain. For console games, I guess we could extend that to 18 (two and a half generations of consoles on average).
For PC, if a game stays incompatible with the newest Windows system iteration (not saying Linux sucks, but Windows IS the most popular system) for at least 7 years since the OS' release, it becomes part of public domain. This does not concern games that work on one store but not on the other (for instance, Fallout 3 is perfectly playable on GOG, but used to be hard to run on Steam).
If a game that's based around multiplayer gets its servers shut, it becomes part of public domain after 5 years. I am unsure how to approach video games with both WAN and LAN connections.
Movie tie-ins become part of public domain as soon as the current company's rights expire. Check out the game the Lord of the Rings: the Return of the King. Made and distributed by EA, but the IP is owned by Warner, so we can't buy it.
If I own a disc copy of the game, and it's stopped receiving compatibility updates, and you are forced to rebuy it digitally to get new OS compatibility, I should be allowed to download a compatible version off of an abandonware website. You shouldn't be made to pay for games twice. Check out the game the Sims: Medieval to see an example of the above.
What do you think? Do you disagree?
Subject: Do Sidify/Noteburner etc actually download the lossless audio?
These programs (all by the same company) say they can dowload from Apple Music, presumably by recording the audio at a high speed and re-encoding it. Output options include MP3, AAC etc but also FLAC and ALAC.
Now Apple Music offers lossless quality but I wonder if this is actually whats being used when FLAC/ALAC is specified as the output? Or is it recording the lossy audio and then just giving it to you in a lossless format?

Subject: Need a media device to play videos without wifi
Hey all sorry if this isn't completely on topic and please remove if it is.
I need to get a device for a family member who's not allowed to have any device that has wifi on in. I have been downloading a bunch of shows and movies but I need something that can play back the media preferably on a USB device onto a TV. I had previously bought this device: Micca Speck G2 1080p Full-HD... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008NO9RRM?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share but it doesn't play things super well and things like CC (I downloaded a lot of anime) doesn't work properly. Does anyone have experience with this specifically?

Well, here it goes. Spent some time searching for one rare ebook on the net. Tried every source I could find (more or less): IRCs, every big ebook piracy website mentioned here in previous posts over the years. Hell, I even checked Vkontakte just in case somebody shared the files.
But nope. It seems no files of this ebook can be found anywhere in the open sources. The only places where you can find it are Amazon and Google book stores. Is there any way to trick the system and get fhe files?

Subject: Streaming site that will keep my place in the video I’m currently watching?
Hi r/piracy !! I’ve spent the better part of an hour searching this reddit and related ones for this question to no luck so lemme see if I can cover all my bases based on what I could find:
My preferred watch method for TV and movies is streaming. I only have Netflix, Hulu, Disney Plus, and basic Prime. Everything else is piracy. My go to trifecta is soap2day, sflix, and flixhq.
I’m also the type of person to not be able to finish a movie or TV episode in one sitting. That’s where sites that hold my place/keep the timestamp are useful. My question is if there’s any site/app that lets me pull episodes from these streaming pirate sites AND saves my place?
Okay now for the things that I’ve found on reddit. Using sites like Plex and apps like VLC player is not what I’m looking for because I don’t have the storage or time to be downloading/torrenting every single TV show and movie I watch. I’ve also seen that I could built my own server using Jellyfin but those guides seem like a lot of technical talk and I only want to delve into that if that’s my only option. Last thing I’ve seen is Trakt. I already use TVTime and Letterboxd but am open to using Trakt if I am provided a site/app that answers my question.
TLDR; In search of streaming site that keeps track of my watch progress without downloading every single episode/movie.
