Hi Rufus,

This is very good question.

From a moral point of view, it would be best to pay for the software, but very often it is not possible because the companies do not exist, email addresses do not work, there is no way to contact software developers in any way. In this case, the only way is hacking. But then it interferes with moral issues. In addition, it is not always possible. I see no other way than trying to contact with developers or hack the program.

Any other options?

Best regards,
Pawel Piotrowski
