What is so ridiculous about it? Lets say you charge approx $100 (or more...)
an hour for advanced DHTML development, something like hiermenus would
require at least 3 working weeks to build properly. that's 12000 bucks (and
probably a lot more). $1495 seems a fair price if you consider that and the
importance of a good and _working_ navigation for a site...

what was the license for the software before they started charging for
it? just curious, as i would like to see if and how they would go after
people who are using it.

if a developer downloaded the software and used it before they started
charging for it, then surely they couldn't be charged now as they took
the software under the conditions at the time of download?

interesting situation, and i'd love to find out just how many people are
willing to pay these ridiculous prices, when it would be possible to
either use many of the free versions available on the web, or pay
somebody a lot less to modify and install one.
