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."

Hanging out with pc gamers is what changed my mind on piracy. I saw way too many who would drop $15 on take-out without thinking but when it came to games would only pay for their MMO subscription.

Then you have the "I'm elite because I read a how-to" attitude where these guys actually think they are special for knowing how to pirate.
