my comment:

Just to put the ideal customer for this mind-set in view, here they is:

– a law abiding, law-fearing, non-demanding, money earning, self-controlled, work and family occupied, non-creative person with too high a salary and too little to spend it on.

This does not address one or a combination of the following, and as long as the industry insists on such one-sidedness, there will be no end to piracy.

– people of little means
– people whose hourly wage is too low to spur loss
– people with wide and demanding taste
