In Denmark in the 80's everybody openly traded tapes full of games in the classifieds paper. Spectrum, C64, Amstrad CPC. If the other guy was close you would arrange to meet and swap tapes, or send a out a C60 in the mail and get one back. I did this a lot at the time when I was 11-15..and never got burned (or sexually molested lol). Pirate's honor I guess. I never got caught either and never heard about anyone getting caught. I don't think my dad had any idea what I was doing.

Then one day out of the blue (about 1988 or 89 I think) they started not taking this type of ad at all, you would buy the paper and there was nothing. Instead there were these little "Piracy is a crime" ads with a phone number you could call and turn in your friends. That was scary as hell for a while..but then I started getting interested in other things and didn't own a computer again until 1998.

Here in Brazil you can buy pirated DVDs and games right in the street. Nobody gives a shit. Ex-president Lula was caught once praising a movie that wasn't out on DVD yet. He said he had watched it on his private plane.
