How many of you use pirate software for your tools? I've used Visual Studio .NET 2005, Maya 7, Photoshop CS 2, Adobe Premiere and loads of other top notch tools/programs that I've never paid for. Paying for that lot would cost an absolute fortune especially when the prices are aimed at corporations and businesses not a single coder trying to knock something up in his spare time. Have you ever used or would consider using pirate software for your products? Would you be worried by the possible legal ramifications? Are you a free software advocate? How do you feel about people who use pirate software?
