Well to me it all depends. I could have easily dled the new Xzibit CD but chose to spend the 12 Canadian dollars and purchase it as i think its worth it since ill listen to it enough to get my moneys worth. On the other hand i didnt really want to shell out $6000 on Autodesk Architechural Desktop or $1500 on Adobe Creative Suite Premium so I downloaded them. I make 45 grand a year, Bill Gates cleared that in the time it took for me to write this sentence, so I also agree ripping off MS is not gonna make me lose sleep either.
