Some random comments on reddit about "If you are involved in software piracy then you are breaking the law" Anti piracy poster, circa 1980

  • Britain has reached Future Tech
  • Britain?
  • It's a country to the east of the Atlantic.
  • Yes but what did it have to do with the poster
  • The poster's made by the Federation Against Software Theft, which is based in the UK. Britain is relevant to the poster because the poster was made in Britain.
  • I don't know how they knew that it was British.
  • Also the first computer to run a 3.5" disk wasn't available until 1982 and wasn't really common until 1984 or after.
  • Well, it's circa 1980 by, you know, 9 years.
  • Circa 1971.
  • 1980 seems a little early for this. The 3.5" diskette (pictured) didn't outsell the 5.25" until 1987/1988: in 1980, most folks wouldn't even recognise the thing pictured as a disk at all. And the picture itself contains a date in 1989. I suspect that this poster was produced far closer to 1990 than 1980. Also, ELSPA (whose logo is in the corner) weren't founded until 1989. Even FAST, whose address is at the bottom, didn't exist until 1984. tl;dr: this is from circa 1990 and certainly not before 1989, not from circa 1980 as OP claims
  • Considering "circa" just means "somewhere around this time", how accurate can we expect it to be? That said, I'd agree that with the date on the poster OP shouldn't have said "1980" at all.
