I've found that it's not really the question of money, but the feel of power. "I can buy the simpler version, but I can steel the full-blown one". there was time that it was almost imposible to buy legal stuff in Poland. 10-15 years ago when I tried to buy some small program it was almost imposible to send money abroad, it was something like $15, but in here it was like my half year of pocket money and in the end they said they won't send it to Poland.
many things changed since then. but the people are still living in past times mentally. "soft is expensive", "it's hard to pay for it", and so on so on. we have some lame laws conserning software, but it's really a minor problem.
I cannot afford the stuff I want. I cannot afford even the stuff I NEED and I'm living from video editing and music writing. but still I find ways to buy the smaller version of things I need, because I feel that people that make these libraries/programs have full right to get paid. I know I would want to get paid if I was in their shoes.
