Football Manager developer discusses piracy

Piracy is a fact of life for game developers. I’m not stupid enough to think that 100 percent of pirated games are lost sales — there are, of course, some people who would not buy or play a game if it wasn’t available for free, but there are also some dishonest people who pirate things they would otherwise buy, just because they can.

Eloquently put and absolutely spot on. I don’t buy the “it costs too much, therefore I pirate” argument; even if an app or game a fraction of a cent, I’d be willing to bet that it would still be pirated due to the “just because I can” mentality.
