    Do you think its nice to download software stuff from the internet? They say ''Sharing is caring'' but is it really okay? Im not talking about the legal aspects. Torrent files account for 75% of online file transfer and most of them are pirated shares.

    Or do you think we should download it to try it out and then buy it if we like it to support the creator? I am not talking of crappy WSOs.

    I think its not nice since it basically means stealing on the web.

    Personally I understand why people download copies of like photoshop cs5 I mean look at the price, it's set so high it's out of reach of the normal average consumer

    It depends! If it some kinds of Themes or Plugins, I will buy it after testing it out from the warez sources because I need support and updates from the developers.

    If those are e-books, I see no point to buy it after reading all of it as well as the videos/audios. Some softwares that are very expensive and I can't afford to buy it as GreenGoblin mentioned above, I will try to use the warez sources unless I have money to buy.

    Mostly, I'm using the mix with warez and legal sources but the legal part is more than the warez part!

    I totally agree. Adobe products are rated high. But I believe that is probably because of the 'name'. It cost me quite a sum when I bought illustrator recently.

    The cost of Adobe products are insane, that's probably why every downloads. I'd pay for it, if it was way more important

    Adobe Illustrator CS5 Graphics/Designing - Complete Product - Standard - 1 User - Retail $1671.00
    Someone tell me that's not the correct price

    Now lets think about the average household child that wants to become a web developer and he's already looking to spend $1671.00
    Fu%$#$ insane!

    I don't feel too bad about it. If it is a small developer/artist/author then I will buy it eventually, otherwise "fuck 'em in the ear, fuck em in the otha ear"

    When the software costs more than the machine needed to run it then I think I am entitled to test it thoroughly ... for 1 or 2 years.

    Any software developed by a company that costs $100's/$1000's deserves to have it pirated. I'm speaking on microsoft/adobe of course. Products that were developed by an experienced software engineer/developer I am rather against.

    If the price is right, why not?

    If the price is too high, nah.

    I use pirated ones occasionally coz simply i cant buy and use a paid product unless i know its worthy to buy. And the ones i have in need as must i pay for eg. idm and many more. Reality is u cant trust any of these torrents/ warez forums coz people bind this rat and shit and share. Even movies aint safe though.

    It's certainly not nice stealing and I really hate the term "sharing is caring" but guess what? I do it anyway. I'm horrible I know... :V

    I don't have any problem with it. I would steal offline if the chances of getting caught were the same as online.

    If I get it to test or to learn on, then I dont mind a warm copy. If I am going to make money from it, I buy it. If its on my website or a customers, I buy it so as to have support.
