I find that sort of thing rather rare, though, at least in my second career. Most of the people I work with recognize the correlation between respecting the property rights of others and having others respect the property rights that pay our salaries. I guess I assumed that the only people who actively ignore the property rights of others are those for whom respect for property rights has much less significant impact.

That kind of disconnect has always fascinated me.
It is not only people, but firms can have the same disconnect. I have seen firms very protective of their intellectual property, but have 30 people running on 3 licenses of Microsoft Office.

This thread inspired me to look into cable alternatives. No, not the illegal stuff. Today I bought a $15 digital flat antenna(RCA Digital Flat Antenna - to see what I would get with it. Simple installation and in a matter of minutes, I have 10 free HD channels. All the major networks, a few public broadcast channels, a weather channel and other stuff. Plus a music channel. And the quality is perfect. I'm amazed what I got for $15. Of course I can get Bloomberg TV via the net to satisfy my financial news needs and other sites like ESPN3 that carries lot's of the same games as on ESPN. I will probably sign up for Netflix for other programming.

My situation is requiring me to spend more and more time at my mom's house due to her failing health, so I can always catch cable programming over there. No need paying $70/mo for cable when I'm simply not at my house much anymore.
