"Life is a struggle. Life will throw curveballs at you, it will humble you, it will attempt to break you down. And just when you think things are starting to look up, life will smack you back down with ruthless indifference..."

"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." -

Based on my own conscience, I will not receive something I know to have been stolen or pirated. I appreciate the creation of the content that I enjoy and it seems appropriate to compensate the creators and/or distributors of that content.

Where the issue of copyright becomes even more gray for someone trying to follow the Darmma is that most adverts seek to induce you to act in ways that lead you off the path.

i guess that the right answer in that case is not to watch TV -easy for someone who turned the idiot box off before even considering following the path that Buddha showed us because of his enlightened compassion.
