The new pirated version now has an "update now" button, and that's a problem. The developers have to pay for the bandwidth for each copy that is downloaded. It's killing them.
I have to say that I admire their attitude: "We’ve always turned a blind eye to pirate copies, even on occasion recommending people who had problems with the legit version try a pirate version until the issues are resolved. We realise the potential viral benefits of pirate copies, and while obviously we’d prefer people to purchase our issue is not with those."
I call this the first concrete proof of piracy because all the other times I've read about income lost to piracy there was always a large degree of handwavium built into the figures.
