Oh, the many ironies of this message are so funny that they are sad.
When software is relatively expensive (as TMG is and Roots III was), some people will justify giving away copies because they object to the amount of profit that they think the company is making.When it is relatively INexpensive (as UFT is), some will justify giving away copies because, after all, the vendor isn't losing much.And those who give away software ALWAYS find solice in the fallacy that everyone does it.
The truth is, some people will steal software and find a convenient justification, no matter what the circumstances. And yes, it is stealing.And no, everybody does NOT do it.
To then wonder why some products have been discontinued and some small but "high-quality" software companies have gone out of business ... oh, it is just too funny.
And then there's the implied criticism that the software company from whom the user is stealing might make decisions that don't hold the longevity of that user's data as the highest priority.
Such people should be sentenced to investing their life savings in a software company.
