Google "I read earlier this week about a developer who made their Android version free after the $1 game was extensively pirated. Stories like this come as no surprise, but the industry press rarely deals with the core problem - and nor does Google. [...] Whilst the aforementioned story about the Android game didn't surprise me, it did horrify me. Android is designed to be difficult to make money from, and the core issue is that it's open - with the corrosive mentality that surrounds such openness."

Perhaps they have the same view of apps as you have of music. To me, music is dirt cheap and really easy to get, as a result I'd say I've paid for the majority of my music collection (and it's all DRM-free and in MP3 format). It also results in my music collection actually being music that I want, not with thousands of tracks I copied from a friend's hard drive and have no interest in other than for bulking up numbers.

Not saying that's what you're about, but I've seen plenty of people like that...
