Editorial Holier-than-thou, an adjective, meaning "marked by an air of superior piety or morality". Everybody has moments in their life where they get into a "holier-than-thou" attitude, and I think Steve Jobs' open letter regarding Adobe, and Flash in particular, really fits the bill. There are three specific points I want to address to illustrate just how holier-than-thou, hypocritical, and misleading this letter really is.

"Charging people in any way for making copies of bits is immoral.

Why? It indeed costs nearly $0 to make a copy of bits, but those bits would not exist without the money.

Why not? The original bits would not exist without the money. Whereas the duplicate bits only required the cost to produce them, nearly £0.
You’re incorrectly assuming ‘worth’ should be transferred upon duplication.
