"...turn copyright violators into legitimate owners..." I admire that view, and wish the RIAA would learn from you. You are teaching respect.

Obviously, EVIL.

Mike David reminds me of a shark I once knew. The other guy doesn't look so sure that what he's doing is right.

I've given 10 years of my life to a form of music (dance music) that has not paid me a cent. In fact, I just sink time and money into it... for what? An occasional gig, but mostly just the satisfaction of pursuing my art. I'm not bitter about not having blown up yet or that my parents didn't make me stay in trumpet lessons back in elementary school; I just don't think I should be sued for using software that I don't derive any income from.

I think audio software companies (er, sw companies in general) should get smarter about their pricing and give more people the opportunity to learn and pursue their interests without the threat of legal action or viruses. Tie the price of your software to my income, for example.

One of the beautiful things about software is that it costs nothing to give away. And it may ultimately help turn a half-interested kid into a professional artist instead of, say, a drug/porn/tv-eating consumer.
