It doesn't sound like an MPAA/RIAA conspiracy theory. I'm sure Drew just plans on taking about 90% as an administrative fee.

Wouldn't just buying a legal copy of the pirated software make you feel better? Not sure this thing will take off. When people really feel guilty, they just buy it afterwards.

Id have to feel so guilty that I couldn't even get to sleep in order to even thingk about donating to those that have more than enough money already... But yeah, funny thing to ask to donate from pirates :) Robinhood is finctional you know. And he gave to the poor. Lees not confuse those basic things please.

There's a nice way that the companies can try to go instead of suing people left and right! Adapt something like this and make it legitimate.

How about donations go to a team of lawyers that help defend those of us that have pirated when the RIAA catches us.

So you're saying you should be innocent if you stole someone's TV only to find out it didn't work when you got it home. Then you went out and bought a new one. You still committed a crime. I'm not innocent either, but your statement is ridiculous.

No the correct analagy is if he built a copy of someones tv. only to find out that the exact copy didnt work, So he went out and bought one. So yeah as far as I am conserned its fair. and you are ridiculous. Piracy is not the same as stealing. When will people realize that.
