I used to justify my use of hookey PC games with the same argument; "There is no way I would ever pay money for this, so there is no victim."
- I doubt somehow that it would hold much water in court.

I do remember being given a copy of the latest 1st person shooter once so I settled in for a mega-session. A mere 5 or six hours later "THE END" popped onto my screen. I had completed the game! I remember thinking that IF I had paid £40 for it I would have been extremely peed off and disappointed.
I paid £3500 a year for 15 years when I was self employed. I feel I’ve paid my share of the development cost.
