Pirated Software
    #1686118 - 07/04/03 11:33 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Whats the general consensus about pirated software out there in this community?
Here are my thoughts.
I dont believe that anyone is really losing anything in my particular case. I have a few(ya...a...few...) non legit programs and my feelings are this. Im not using this software to make any money and if I did I certainly would pay for it. Also if it came down to choosing whether or not to pay for the software or give it up, there is no contest, it would be gone. So theoretically its money the software companies wouldnt have anyway.

it's ok, but i doubt that it makes all of the hard-working programmers particularly happy. these people need to eat too, but on the other hand...

if you have the cash, you should buy- if not, well, .evaluate.

i doubt those who program for adobe or other commonly pirated companies are hurting for cash.

Actually programmers aren't paid much, proportionnally to the money software companies make.

?
I know people in programming, including Adobe programmers, and they are paid well- software companies do make way too much though, management is satan

but if things go worse for them, the programmers get fucked- management will still get bonuses and raises

If it gets to that point the management would prolly have to worry about strikes....
