However, not everyone has come across such a site. For your ediification, I present 'A Tour Of A "Pay to Download Firefox" Site', with detailed analysis and screenshots. You'll be pleased to hear we have recently been having some success using trademark law with preliminary injunctions and domain name disputes against such sites."

Its just to bad that many people just don't take the time to care.

But not here in Germany. :-)

"I can't see software, why should I pay for it?" is a common attitude, even in educational or corporate settings - I've seen it myself.

Yes... obviously, that's the reason of many (the most?) problems across the Internet, such as viruses, spam, data espionage...
