Everyone here has pretty much covered it.

Fair Use is one of those concepts that gets handled on a case by case basis and you only get to use that defense once you get to court. Is it worth having to get to that point?

um... YES!
alot of companies couldnt give a FLYING FUCK about their customers.
just look at the NAZI digital restrictions management some companies are using. look at ableton! you have to REQUEST more activations, giving them the ability to completely fuck over paying customers (AND THEY DO), while pirates just keep using the app (btw, if im refering to your comment in the wrong context, its cause u didnt quote anyone). in these cases, im a piracy advocate, as long as the product was purchased. in these cases its a VERY FAIR way around the disrespectful anti-piracy techneques. (ide much rather pay the $50 canadian for an ilok then deal with the morons who do challenge and response)

as for extortionate pricing, theres no excuse. thats just profit for them. sure, development costs are through the roof, but highschool math teaches the calculations taht optimize sales and profit. boxing, writing to cd, and printing manuals will not cost the company more then a few dollars an edition. if they lowered the prices, they would most definately get more sales! they are doing MUCH better then breaking even, and are squeezing independant musicians for every dollar they have. <- thats the job of the record label, not the software devs.
now, again, im not saying pirating is ok, but companies need to rethink pricing, and piracy wont be as bad. perhaps do what cocos did with reaper, and have a very trimmed down price for people making under $20,000 a year with the music made in reaper.

IMSTA and participating: there are people on the other end of the wealthy and riches! There are these people not only in countries with a little BSP, no! Him you might find in the same house, on the same street, same city! "IMSTA & Cie. co." excludes these people to have part of humanity through its pricing policy! Where is the highly celebrated humanity? Music can contribute much to peace, elixir to survive! Music supplanted the use of force and builds bridges, whether as a Lullaby or rap, whether Western classical music or sounds by aborigines. IMSTA seems to have lost this aspect from the eyes and imagines users only in the prosperity!
