Piracy doesn’t bother me.
It’s quite easy to pirate any of my paid content (namely, The Art of Freelancing). And you know what? I’m not freaking out. It’s ok.
I know quite well what it’s like to be a poor college student living off of student loans. I know what it’s like to not have an income. I know what it’s like to struggle to pay for a $10 download (much less a $57 one). Because I went through that.
But even back then I forced myself to pay for the downloads and bought many of the old Massive Black videos. Even though I had never met them, guys like Jason Chan, Whit Brachna, Nox, El Coro, and Carl Dobsky became my teachers. I used my sparse cash to pay for these downloads so that I could become a better artist. And it paid off. Without those videos I would not be the artist I am today.
So if you’re really strapped for cash but are desperate to learn, feel free to pirate anything of mine. Maybe down the road when you’re better off you can buy it properly. Or maybe not. Either way it’s ok. I won’t hunt you down or sue you or anything.
I wish you the best of luck in your career. I hope I can help you in some small ways to reach your goals.
