@adidasispeachy @imikebeas @applespeculator @the_gadgeteur I think I'm younger than all you, and I was a kid more recently than you :p I'm 17 now, and I develop tweaks because I like doing so and because I'm earning money for my future studies at university. I spent a lot of time working on Springtomize and its copy protection, and now, after 24 hours, thousands of people are getting all this work for free (I started working on it almost 4 months ago).
Also, I always tried not to charge too much for any of my products, because I know that spending more than 3-4 $ may sound expensive.
If you want to start figuring out what I loose, just calculate (let's say) the 10% of all pirates (assuming that's the lowest part of them that would have bought the program legally). The rate is 1:80 = legit : pirates.
I'm not saying I'm the first dev whose stuff gets pirated, I know, this is how things happen every time. I just thought I had to spend these 3 minutes writing this.. Now, back to work (even If my motivation is really low at the moment).
