what i have predicted few weeks ago it's happening...another developer ceased building new models. It is wasn't necessary being a genius to understand which damages piracy did it to small developers, earning are low and piracy just decrease at 0 level. Just impossible start new models for small developers...a server COST! people modelling cost, support cost and so on. I am really not agree with people talking about top quality don't have this problem. Piracy do not see quality but hit everything. Top quality , low quality, high prices, low prices, no difference with piracy, they just do it for fun, they crack all, they are just cynic people.
Many are worried of torrents, in my opinion the real problem started with download service as rapidshare, etc. What is the best thing of the web, freedom, is also the biggest problem. Noone check files uploaded especially payware download services that earn with subscription and with payware products cracked.
It could be nice that all developer ceasing production of new models, sceneries and utilities for one year...we will see then what theY crack, nothing. I am actually on "PAUSE" modelling and just seeing how can give so many problems to pirates as much i can. I have few ideas actually.
A DEVELOPER BUILD SOMETHING, A PIRATE IS JUST A COPIER
