a few clarifications:
admission of piracy or however I was phrasing it, is not equal to subverting rules. That is never what I had meant. Its just that when you read these in their entire context something is fishy in terms of how audio description content could have been obtained... if we bring the piracy issue up for alternative hosts or for discussing something, then there's got to be something wrong with the current content that is out there.
For one, I am not living in the U.s., I stopped doing so at least 8 years ago, and its pretty clear in the info that precedes every post I make.
Second, its correct that you do need different ways to access things that other people can do very easily, such as checking books out of libraries at no cost, which can cost though you don't really really really need that pearl camera, a regular scanner would be fine, too. However, being blind also offsets some other things. You could argue that there is no need for a light-bulb to stay on when you live all by yourself and so on and that conserves some bill costs. Also, on the other side of the world such as where I live, you do have other kinds of propaganda which isn't helping either . Again, the comments towards that side of the perspective were in regards to the context of all of the posts on this topic alone, maybe on other forums its just different, but here it really shows with all of the dramas that actually have been starting since last year.
@70: valid points but not very strong:
Of course I would not agree much on what copyright does for the artists, and worse for big corporations, but take the cloned games drama. There needs to be a line drawn somewhere and you would understand this fully only when you are living independently and get paid for your creative output whether as an emerging developer or as an artist, and so on. Piracy is making this harder each time and people are actually retiring or selling things at other places or finding other jobs, yet some kids also don't get it. Those are also objective facts.
as far as Scribd's or Libgen's, that was exactly the point I was trying to make. So one of those platforms could or would be used. Though wikipedia again, is an open collaborative platform where anyone can post and edit. You would not see those mirrors on something more serious for university and true research like this or this
