We all talk about piracy now as it is this killer of consoles like Xbox or Playstation. A total war against Torrents and websites such as Pirate Bay, like they are the new public enemy. As someone who grew up with the Commodore Amiga, a system that practically lived and died by the ease in which its software was pirated, I’ve seen it all before. There are two things I remember most about using the Commodore Amiga 500, the first is the iconic Amiga Workbench hand, and the second is watching XCopy counting zeros, a great program practically designed for piracy and probably the most loved Amiga program ever. Youtube Vlogger Dan Wood, is taking a closer look on how piracy affected Commodore and Amiga in this interesting small documentary.
