I was trying to, oh well nevermind. My point is that, the developer created it. He demands that for each license that is being used, he expects a sale. And we are denying him that sale by talking about "theft" and "copy" and all that.
Yes, and plenty of other people would disagree, saying that most pirates wouldn't have bought a copy anyway, so it's not denying him a sale. This thing you want everybody to just agree on is the central matter of the debate.
Good point. I agree. But if they wouldn't have bought a copy, then they weren't entitled to using it in the first place correct?
I mean, companies generally prefer you pirate their products than their competitors. But if we're going to be absolutely critical, the company can claim "If you aren't going to pay us, you have no right to use our product. You used our product without paying us."
