If I copy your car, then I have a car and you still have a car, which you could use or sell.
Having inventory stolen is different from copyright infringement.

Yeah, but I doubt that there's a WoW player that's a illiterate mass-murdering celebrity billionaire terrorist!
Osama bin Laden might play WoW, though.
I requested coupons for a couple of older TVs, but never received them. I inquired but they said they were sent out and there is nothing further they could do, and suggested getting an unused card from a friend or relative who had to many. Perhaps a trading site could be set up to match people who have extras with people who didn't get any for whatever reason?
If you have nothing better to do with it, I could send you a stamp to send it my direction.
The same thing happened to me; my coupons never arrived, even though they were listed as being sent. Good thing I have family members that never would've requested them otherwise.
I wonder if it would have been safer to mail them in more nondescript envelopes?...
"if you sell a piece of software for even one dollar, you have MADE one dollar because after its creation there is no cost"
But who paid the programmers to make the software in the first place?
You stupid stupid STUPID cunt.
Once you recoup your development costs, then it's almost ALL profit. You still have to pay for producing discs and packaging, but a $1000 DVD of Photoshop will cost roughly the same to physically manufacture as a $50 game. Why do you think software goes down in price over time, notably in digital distribution? Services like Steam don't have to worry about shelf-space, so once the developers break even, they can afford to lower the price to entice more customers. A lower profit per unit is certainly better than none at all.
Please pay attention when you're deriding someone: "...after it's creation there is no cost". The parent noted your point, and your final comment certainly speaks volumes about your powers of observation.
Bravo, good sir, bravo.
