[Gary Huff] Adobe has been a profitable company throughout the period where their software was one of the most pirated in the world. The people who did the direct work of creating this software all got paid on salary, which was not directly tied to any amount of copies that were sold."

Unbelievably wrong - their salary, the companies profits and it's very existence was tied to the number of copies that were sold.

[Gary Huff] But the fact remains that people pirate, have pirated, and will pirate, and our response to these thought-exercises should be to look at things as they are, and not just offer some knee-jerk robotic response of "Copyright infringement is stealing and stealing is bad and you should feel bad.""

And people steal and shoplift and break all kinds of laws, so we should just acknowledge that they do it, shrug our shoulders and go on with our day - nothing to see here. Gary, you are a professional're OK with people pirating your work and not getting paid?
