    god damn software publishers.. I say for everytime one of them tries to restrict a customer's rights to what he has purchased or gouge his wallet, we each go and download a pirate copy.

    god damn scam artists, if they focused more on lean/tight code instead of GUI skins, pretty boxes, hyped up marketspeak,ineffectual yet invasive copy protection schemes, and the arrogant assumption that their apps are actually worth the money they charge, maybe they could lower their prices to something more reasonable and fewer people would bother with piracy. Just because software is purchased via a license agreement should not give vendors the right to legally manhandle users. I guess we're damned if we pirate and damned if we buy, so why pay for the 'privilege?'


    All joking aside, I'm not implying that 'IP infringement' is completely moral, but I don't believe the software markets are where they should be morally either. I just play the opposing side of the same dirty games they play.

    ... if you don't need it, don't buy it. if you need it buy it. no one is holding a gun to your head saying purchase this product or die. There are many free, open source alternatives out there. Some of them are even better them retail commercial software.

    I also believe in IP, but at the same time, I also support the OSS, and have contributed lots of code to several projects on SF.

    It's getting harder to buy a computer, especially a reasonably priced laptop, without having to buy windows...so, yes I am 'forced' into it.

    That's cool, which projects?

    What does buying a computer with Windows pre-installed have to do with stealing software?

    What is this 'stealing'? How does one steal software?

    There is? How? Are you assuming that every copy is a lost sale? Most 'pirates' don't have the money to buy or would never consider buying whatever they copied, so there isn't much monetary loss...at least, not nearly as much as the RI/MPAA/BSA want everyone to think.
