      Well, there’s rightfully supporting the owner of a product by legally paying for it, then there’s recognising when you’re getting ripped off.

      I buy the international versions. It's the same information with the same setup, but it's a fraction of the price. My bio book was supposed to be 300 dollars. I got the international versions new for 25.

      Bought an 80$ book I never used, tried selling it back but they gave me back 11$ because there was a new edition. Funniest part was I used to work there so I'm buddies with the employees and manager and they themselves told me "new edition" just means they changed one word or two.

      Then they go with mandatory online grading that you must buy, including the ebook so pirating can't even work.

      Textbook prices are ridiculous. There is no reason they should be priced so high. It’s even worse when the professor writes the book then makes you buy it for their class. Pearson is an evil company and colleges are out to bankrupt you.

      Colleges get literal children to sign up to go thousands of dollars into debt in exchange for a degree that is worth much less than it was when it cost much less. Then charge you hundreds for every book and everything else along the way.

      Piracy isn’t wrong, all it’s hurting is large corporations and large corporations are evil by default. There are certain cases where I recommend you throw some money the way of the creator (small indie stuff, like games and music) but as a whole piracy is morally incheck

      Martin Shkreli went to jail for raising the price of the EPI pen to a ridiculous point. I have yet to see one college be charged with having ludicrous prices on their books, and we all know that you generally end up buying more than one. Besides the medical vs. academic nature of the items, why not?
