And what is your point here? That your need to "complete projects" 
justifies your theft of another persons creative output? Weak.

Most musical software companies are relatively small, founded by 
people who were passionate about doing the thing their software was 
designed to do.

At the _very_ least, your attitude disrespects these people who are 
trying to make a living creating the programs that you use.

Music software is not going to make anyone very rich.

Are you arguing for some sort of "fair use" interpretation of the 
copyright law? If I read what you wrote correctly, your position is 
that it's not piracy unless you make money with, or sell copies of, 
the software in question. Get real.

And then, in another message you write:

>im down to do a trade with my cool edit pro (worth i belive about 

Here you are trying to use one piece of stolen software as something 
to barter for more of the same. You even acknowledge the value of the 
software you are trying to trade. Even by your own definition, 
haven't you entered the realm of piracy with this offer of trade?
