Poll Preview: Paying Your Fair Share -- Matt Deatherage's article this week about Gadget Software's misappropriation of shareware utilities from other developers highlights an unusual case of using software without paying for it. But what about the more common situation of not paying for the shareware programs we all use?

Please be truthful when you vote on our home page - our polls are anonymous. [ACE]
