@the_mighty_monarch: I don't get how marvel is winning either.

I went to the dynamite website to refresh my memory of the female characters, they might be the worst.
Two words, Top Cow.
Doesn't really matter.. but not Dynamite.
This doesn't matter, but who would win a fight in a crossover does? I realize that's not what you were saying but I haven't seen a comment or at least remember one saying it "doesn't really matter" on one of the battle polls that come up each week. Not calling you out or trying to pick a fight at all. Just an observation of the comment, not the person who posted it.
Dark Horse for the most part In my opinion. Looking at the company as a whole and it's portrayal of most of it's female characters to me the company has the best track record over the years. They have genuinely strong female characters that usually are not wearing skin tight body suits or super revealing costumes/clothing. They are probably the best at it these days and for the past decade really.
I am a member of the banana slug club. To enter that you are supposed to kiss a banana slug, or if you are a bad ass like me you lick the f##ker's whole damn back. I guess that was my first french kiss. I was four.
@renchamp: That is true, I don't think it is a good thing to do, but it isn't on the level of robbing a lady of her purse and harming her or stealing a car. That is something that I find pretty ridiculous honestly. Stealing intellectual property, which is definitely wrong, is not on the level of ripping a purse away from someone on the street and bolting away with it. It is such a dumb and over the top comparison that it ends up making it laughable in my opinion.
There is an amusing thing that happened to me once. I highly doubt it was actually done or taken from us, but back in 2004 me and my friend wrote a script and had a myspace page where we posted it as well as some others. Anyway one script we put up (which was quite frankly absolute s##t) had a scene where the two characters in it were in Las Vegas and they saw a tiger and one said "Oh look, a tiger! I wonder who owns it." Then the character goes to pet it and he gets cold clocked by Mike Tyson. I'm completely serious, it was written just like that. Then out comes The Hangover five years later and I had forgotten about that script but there was an extreme feeling of deja vu when the scene with Mike Tyson happened in the film while I watched it in theaters. Two days later I remembered and looked it up. I was very amused obviously. Again I very much doubt, actually I find it completely unrealistic, that the person who wrote the script saw the s##t script me and my friend wrote. Still very amusing to me lol.
@bluff_: Laughable. Good luck finding relevant, non-biased information on piracy using Google. Are you suggesting Wikipedia is as reliable as a textbook written specifically for CJ?
There is no difference between piracy and me stealing files off your computer. If you support piracy, you should be fine with me taking whatever files you have on your computer without your permission.
That's why I said little to no justifications. That is an extreme event. All you were posting was "Hurr durr, I can get whatever copy I want because it didn't work for me". That is not a justification for a crime.
Then again, I don't expect you to really know anything about criminal law like I do. I'll let you off easily since you're ignorant to it and haven't been studying it the past years.
Well to the first highlighted point the government is already doing that to people lol.
And to the second, where does your experience and understanding of criminal law come from, if you don't mind me asking. I am just curious.
I used to do it but I don't anymore. I only did it for music and I stopped in freshman year of high school. Quite frankly I don't really have a problem with it, the ads on DVD's and the ones that start before a movie begins in the theaters always compare it to robbing a woman of a purse or stealing a car and saying it isn't a victimless crime is crap in my opinion. It seriously does not hurt the entertainment industry at all. Someone already posted an article about how it doesn't and there are dozen's of other articles covering the subject and many of them come for reputable news sites.
