The lessons you posted
Lesson 1: Obscurity is a far greater threat to authors and creative artists than piracy. Lesson 2: Piracy is progressive...

The most significant lesson anyone learns in life
is to bear fruit from one's labor. Artists creative effort, if worthless, should be made available for free and furthermore, any great artistic talent should have the right to offer his valuable work for free but only by choice.
Therefore, artists who have created their work and have it copied, unauthorized, are learning a new lesson. That the fruit of one's labor can be taken away, against his will and in violation of the law; simply because technology has made it easy to do so. People like you try to re-write life's lessons. Obscurity is better than being victimized. Unauthorized reproduction is a crime.

Now to end your lesson 2.
2: Piracy is progressive...and it is becoming progressively more criminal now that laws on the books are beginning to be enforced.
