BrickGamers 30 - Good vs Evil?

Like the music (and movie) industry, the software industry is also a victim to piracy, and it's not just operating systems and applications, but even games too. We're sure many gamers in Malaysia play pirated games - simply because we can't afford to pay original prices with the exchange rate.
