    One of them is information and has no physical value, and another is a physical object with physical value.
    ~
    bottom line truly.

    I was contemplating on going into economic theory then I became aware you wouldn't understand.

    both take time and money to develop.
    sure, one is physical and one is virtual, but law is law.
    companies have a right to charge for something that took them time and money to develop, whether its physical or virtual.

    ebooks may be cheaper than physical books, but the author had to write the story and take time out of their life to do so.

    no matter the medium, you are still accessing the same content.
    this may not apply to every aspect of this topic and argument, but its a simple example that even you can understand.

    Books in physical form have physical value each copy with its own physical value. Pricing information and giving freedom to pump it out unlimited. Causes inflation
    ~
    When we buy a book we're paying for the physical form since information in it's essence is free and unrestricted.
    I support the pricing and sale of artistic works, but the internet brings up problems. Without a physical form how can we validate the sale of pure information? Especially since this idea can cause unrealistic pricing and inflation.

    its amazing. you have an argument that makes no sense to everything don’t you?

    whether its physical or not, some dude still spent tons of his own time to pump it out.
    so, do you think every operating system should be free just because they have the ability to ship it by downloadable ISO or DMG?

    Of course.
    ~
    This is a cancer or capitalism moving into the internet, the internet wasn't made for sale of information or any of those things. That's the bottom-line to me, the internet wasn't made for profiteering and neither does it work out for people looking in that interest. There will always be a tug-of-war, but the bottom line is why should I make physical sacrifice for something that has no physical value. And how do we maintain a stable economy when profit can be made on things without physical value?
    How do we sell information when look at the key principle we're paying for things, regardless of the work put into them, that have no physical value, I can't resale this and even if I were to resale simply a key, how is its value truly validated?

    The natural response to this kind of BS is to not pay for it since principally it has no value.

    im sorry, but you are way too out of touch with the real world dude.

    although, i have to give you a little credit for never using the argument, “i was never going to pay for it anyway, so…"

    These are economic questions being posed already the only reason I know to bring these things up is because I heard some economist throwing around plays with IT on Discovery or sumthin'.
    ~
    my points were valid and not far flung into economic theory, information inflation is indeed a problem.

    GIMP has a plugin for content aware scaling if that's what you're talkin' about.

    gimp has some interface issues on mac.

    ill stick with pixelmator.
    vie got a 30 day demo until i decide to buy it.
    for my needs, its better than photoshop. Ill probably end up getting photoshop anyway though.

    no good open source paint programs for mac. (Paint.net for windows rapes for my needs)
