Have you ever done work for a client (to standard) and they've vanished with it, and your fee, burning a hole in their pocket? If you've been around for any length of time, you've had this happen.

It sucks.

Having said that, there are ways to access software legally when one (for whatever reason) can't afford a license. For example, my partner and I, are always open to letting filmmakers use our tools (at night usually or sometimes during the day when machines are free) at no cost, to make their short films. The thought behind it being, people can usually use a break, and if things work out well, then they can afford to buy their own tools.

So that's what I tell people just starting out. There's no harm in asking for a favour, everyone in this business has benefited from others generosity in some way.

Respect your tools, as they are your means to an end.
