Of course the chat comes down to the loss of business & developers too, but has it been quite as bad as the press & industry make out?
There is even an admission that he may have once owned a pirated game or knew someone that did, but it's not confirmed in such a way to incriminate anyone!!
Is piracy really that bad? Listen to this podcast to hear one mans view on whether that is the case.

A lot of the times when you get to meet your heroes you are left feeling some what disappointed, but this was not the case for me as I found both Oliver's to be really friendly, down to earth,funny and very professional and they exceed all my expectations
It was a real honour for me to speak to the them and I'm ever so grateful that they took the time to appear on the 1HMPS Retro Podcast/Retro Asylum.
