There Was Piracy in the ’80s?

Wow, I had no idea that you could even pirate stuff in the ’80s. How did that work? Did you load up Asteroids onto six different floppy disks and mail it to your friends? Or exchange it like a drug deal like in this picture?

I was about to say “thank God for modern technology” that has made piracy way easier than it used to be, but then I thought “how many people actually got caught handing a disk to someone else by a cop or a game manufacturer?” I believe the answer is “zero.”
