Master of the obvious: RPG file sharing hurts the hobby

And the award goes to this guy.

In other news, water is wet and the sky is blue.

I do, however, before I leave the issue with the brilliant (and might I add, damn witty) summation above have to call out a couple of the most lame arguments made on various sides of this issue:

  • I took an illegal file to my game and my group liked it so much they bought five! File sharing helps the hobby!
Wow. So when a shoplifter takes Tylenol instead of Bayer Aspirin, that's a sign of brand strength that Tylenol execs should be happy about. Gotcha.
  • If someone robs a bank, the bank doesn't have the money! If I download a PDF the guy who wrote it still has it. It's fictional property so I haven't stolen anything!
Someone call all the old people who have to work an extra 10 years because of Enron or Worldcom that it's ok because they still have their stock.
