iPhone Pirates! Answered

Picture of

From Wired:

"The iPhone's App Store is becoming an increasingly juicy target for pirates, who have illegally cracked 20 percent of paid applications for free distribution.

Apple's App Store offers about 25,000 paid apps, and iPhone analytics company Medialets estimates at least 5,000 have been pirated. The company also said it has tracked dozens of apps with as high as a 100-to-1 pirated-to-paid ratio."

That's one fifth of Apple's applications for the iphone!

What do you guys think? Do any of you use the pirated apps? Most of us have heard all the downsides to pirating, are there upsides to pirating?

Opinions welcome; discuss!
