The free market decides what's profitable for movie studios and what isn't.

Yeah, it allows them to use cheap foreign labor to make the equipment/media, but if we try to use that same level playing field to get cheaper media, they cock block us with regions. The free market has decided that the global economy is a good thing, so price accordingly or gtfo.

If they really cared, the previous version would be 50+% off and the version(s) before that would be free. The same goes for Adobe and their ilk. You don't HAVE to offer any support, but if you sold older versions cheaper and/or free, you would have much less piracy. You know they're not going to buy the new version, so why not take what you can get for the older stuff? I was gonna buy a legit copy of 7 for my next build, but it's the same price it's been since launch, and that is 2.1 versions ago. Fuck that.
