    You can't just give it away

    This is old, but it has got to go here: Firefox Pirated.
    If everything looks perfect, then there is something you don\'t know

    Not surprising really, those people do tend to see everything in black and white. They really don't think things through. If you get a monthly computer magazine it will have CDs/DVDs with all sorts of "free" software including Firefox and Internet Explorer.

    A lot of "free" software states that you are permitted to charge for media, shipping, handling, user guides and so on. You can still download it free if you want.

    I can remember sites back in the days of 28.8 and 33.6 modems where you selected freeware and they burned it to a CD and sent it to you for a relatively modest fee. It made sense if you had a slow modem and an unreliable phone connection (particularly if you had a pay per minute ISP account).

    I would have thought that the trading standards people would have done their homework a bit better
