PLEASE! SUPPORT INDEPENDENT SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS by purchasing the software you use. Stay away from fraudulent websites that sell illegal copies of software for a fraction of the original cost and avoid the temptation to download software illegally from peer to peer networks. Your purchase can make the difference between an independent developer being able to create and support their software, and going out of business.
Please buy the software you use directly from the manufacturers’ web stores or authorized resellers. If you can't afford the expensive, “big name” software, keep in mind that there is always an affordable alternative out there. Find those alternatives and avoid warez at all costs!
