Just because you *think* something is expensive, doesn't give you the right to steal it.
Whenever I pirate something it's through greed, pure and simple, and I won't try and make any bullshit excuses for doing it.
I used to see a lot of this kind of ignorance and arrogance on the computer music forum I used to hang about on - n00bs would insist that they needed the top-of-the-range software like Nuendo (£1000 worth of pro media production software) or Cubase SX (£500) to make music, because the more affordable packages somehow "weren't good enough" for them.
But the guys who *really* lose out are the ones who make other more affordable software - like FL Studio etc.
