Of course, companies CAN address some of their problems. Forex, I used to be something of a specialist in cracking computer games. If a friend had something that looked interesting, I’d crack it and install it. This told me two things:

1. Will it REALLY work on my computer, without breaking something else? I got really tired of paying $50 to $60 dollars for something that was NEVER going to run on my computer, and then getting told I couldn’t get a refund because I opened the box. Sure, I could pay by credit card and bounce the charge back because they sold me defective merchandise (which is exactly what they did unless the box cover told me exactly which combos of software would blow up), but that’s a hassle.

2. I didn’t feel like paying that same cash for bad schlock.

So I bought Universal Neverlock, and other cracks, and used them. Then software companies wised up and started releasing complete demos. Now I can just get them, and everyone’s happy.
