Where do I begin? A little less than a year ago my son Taylor went to the bank with me, filled out a withdrawal slip on his bank account and took out almost all of the money he had been saving for years because finally he knew just exactly what he wanted, an X Box 360. He and I stood in line for nearly three hours in the bitter cold outside Toy R Us last Black Friday, 3 hours was a long wait in this cold Minnesota weather but he would have waited 3 more just to get that X Box. Fast forward nearly a year later and what was once a source of joy and accomplishment, as he had saved so hard, has now become a source of sorrow. All that money down the drain just like that, but it’s not about the money, we have enough of that, we can afford to buy a new X Box. The sorrow comes from the insinuations of thievery, pirateering, lying, trying to cheat the system, illegitimacy, violations. My son has been made to feel like a criminal, innocent until proven guilty no longer seems to apply, guilty until proven innocent doesn’t even apply, it’s just guilty, that’s it. How is it that we have come to a place in time whereby the very companies that are meant to provide entertainment to our children rob them of their voice and their right to assert their innocence regardless of merit? What is that saying to the generation who will be looking after you one day when you grow old? What happened to morals and ethics and just plain doing the right thing? I would imagine that the systems you have in place to check for piracy have a high level of accuracy, maybe even 99.9%, you are Microsoft after all, but what about the 0.1% who are caught in the crossfire, my son maybe, does he mean nothing to you? What is seemingly nothing to you is everything to me. Maybe I am just naïve as I have never been in the business or corporate world, I am a Registered Nurse, I look after people, I don’t hurt people but I am wondering just how full do your multibillion dollar pockets need to get before you stop and take a look in the mirror and really see what you are doing?
