[Jeremy Garchow] "Here's what happens when you give the people what they want for a fair price:"

I agree with this. I bet piracy of FCPX took it on the nose with the drastic price drop.

Adobe may have some success with Creative Cloud.

Still the analogy of bootlegging with theft is right on some marks and wrong on others. If companies use ownership to drive prices up and gouge the consumer, where is the ethics in that? That is why we have anti-monopoly and price-fixing laws.

As to the morals of intellectual properties (such as the aforementioned fictional reel of DC) that is a whole nother can of worms.

And as to bootlegged software --perhaps I am just being more honest here and perhaps not. Are you guys really saying you have never used a friend's licence to get a software that was expensive (Jeremy at least fessed up)? Are we all really all that pure? Right or wrong I have a feeling more people that will admit have dirty hands in this respect.
