Look, I’m not saying that I myself don’t get pirated software as well, but let’s be real here people. Pirating software is stealing. To say that pirating software would decrease if software prices was more affordable maybe true, but this is a capitalistic society that we live in (most of us anyways). In a capitalistic society, it comes down to supply and demand. These companies that determine what they want to charge, and if you the consumer are willing to buy it, then you will pay for it, if not, you won’t or you will buy an alternative product. There are alternative products out there to Photoshop or Office which cost less. That’s like saying, well I’m going to go steal a Porche because I like all the extra features and options that it has versus a Chevy Camero, but the Porche cost to much. Please, let’s be honest with ourselves and call it what it is, stealing. Yes, I do it too, and I don’t try to justify with excuses.
