take groceries from your neighbor's house than to go to the grocery store? Well
yeah, it is. You don't have to
pay for gas, it's a lot closer so it will take less time, and after all, they
invited you to dinner last week and said to make yourself at home didn't they?
So you can save a ton of money, it's really convenient and after all, you have
to eat don't you? Your children will suffer if they don't get that food, and you
can't really afford to buy it all yourself after all.... times are hard. If you
could only save money on the food, you can afford to send your kids to camp this
summer and everyone wants what’s best for the kids after all!
I doubt many people would
their personal Netflix account is somehow ok. It's less expensive for the library to
maintain one Netflix account than it is to buy all those movies themselves. It's more convenient too, they don't
have to manage a vast collection, put them on servers, deal with where to store
things... it's very convenient, and they save money too! And after all, they are
paying for the service. The fact that the neighbors invited them LAST week for
agreement specifically states this account is for PERSONAL use.
That they are prohibited from public display.
How is that OK?
We are teaching far more
than the content of our lessons.
Is it ok to pirate movies, music, novels? Is it ok to photocopy textbooks instead
of buying a copy for each child.
Intellectual property rights are difficult to enforce, and sometimes even
difficult to see the victim. That
doesn't make it OK to steal. That
doesn’t make it OK to break the copyright laws. Just because Netflix is unlikely to
persecute, doesn’t make it OK to violate the agreement you have made with them.
That they, in turn, made with the people that hold the copyrights to those
movies and shows.
