It is rather hard nowadays to find Amiga piracy.
Is it really dead, or just deep underground?
Have anti-piracy messages in AmiGIFT worked? :) If anyone remembers how widespread Amiga piracy was in the bad old days, today's Amiga pirating activities are by comparison weak and ineffectual IMHO..

Amiga piracy nearly dead? : Comment 13 of 26ANN.lu

In reply to Comment 11 (Gabriele Favrin):
Don't you undestand that in this small market piracy kills all development. It'äs not same as in Windows, Mac or linux world. You simply can't compare Amiga marjket to mainstream. In the mainstream there is o much more users that developers make lot's of money even if someone pirates their software. If users pirate commercial Amiga software it's quite possible that developer willnot make enough money and then development will just end.

It's totally different situation with Amiga and mainstream.

"Why do you beleive that an Win/Mac user will switch to
AmigaOS if he can't find commercial stuff for free as it
happens in its current market? "

If piracy is the only way some Windows user would switch to Amiga, then it's better he/she continues to use that Wiondows box. You can pirate Windows software as much as you want :P Why should you switch to Amiga if you just want to pirate software ?

If you? or he/she are/is not ready to buy Amiga software and support further development then that person really is not interested about Amiga. And if so, I don't see any reason why he/she should switch to Amiga.

There is much more software which you can pirate in the mainstream. If you just want to opirate software do not start using Amiga.
