Neven Mrgan chats with people who pirate his game

I’m sure you have a number of excuses for why you avoid paying people who make the apps you enjoy, but the reality for me is that without your $1.99 – and yes, it’s two bucks we’re talking about here – I don’t have an incentive to make apps…I just wanted to let you know how it feels to work on an app for months and then see it shamelessly cracked and offered by a donation-supported website. It feels pretty gross.

The justifications they give are wide and they’re pretty much the same reasons people give for downloading music.

But, despite all the rationalizing, whether logical or not, there’s really only one reason why people download software and music for free.

Because they can.
