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... -jonas -----Original Message----- From: Ben Phillips [mailto:ben at inchima.com] Sent: Wednesday, March 06, 2002 6:16 PM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: RE: [thelist] Hiermenus is licensed now? > Yes, it does cost a fortune.

As far as "already having it on > your hard drive," well stealing shareware is still stealing. 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. benji inchima.com -- For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archive of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
