Piracy is it Good for the Environment?

Image without attribution because that is what piracy is all about, not giving credit where it is due.

This picture does make you think.

On first blush you are likely to agree with the sentiment. You may have minor concerns with regards to semantics. The use of your computer to download anything from the Internet is definitely not a "no pollution" scenario.

The bigger picture speaks to laid-off workers from piracy. But is this the model? Is this the Linux way? Should everything be open source and in the public domain?

Art makes you question what you see, so it is obvious that this must be art. If it is environmentally responsible to promote piracy then surely the artist of this particular piece won't mind that we are sharing it freely without attribution.

Spread the word.
