Using a pirate version is no different than someone copying your pictures and using them as their own. Ask yourself how you would feel if someone dd you that way. After all it isn't costing you anything.
this basically. Finding it ironic whats been said so far is being said in photography site. IMO photography is an area that is just as paranoid about IP issues as the software industry. Its why why even a starting to pro wedding shooter has a battery of contracts to sign, the general practice of clients don't get source files for x amount of time (if at all), etc. Hell most I know take the time to fiddle with that clunky interface (on Nikon anyway) to put in their copyright info. Just in case......
They see their pics from a site plastered on a billboard one day, I'd bet a dollar to a donut they'll be making a few phone calls. Probably to someone with Esq. or J.D on their business card lol.
But back on topic, the price is nice. Seems to be a trend. Kind of related but looking at Nik software. If I use BH, I get the LR/aperture suite (not the one with PS support) for like ($219?). Direct download from NIk, $300. its a question of do I want it now now, or save a few bucks. Guessing its been a rough year and software vendors letting oem/authorized retailers make some deals to move some product.
