Indeed.

Nobody pays if they don't have to. In a corporate environment, it's hard to justify spending on products with a price tag, encrypted license keys et al. Now try to justify spending when you don't have to !

Theo should tap in the sponsoring budget of tech companies, not their 'good tech citizenship' budget.
