Not necessarily - this might apply to software developers like Microsoft. However, developers for applications like Photoshop and 3DSMAX that get most of their money out of commercial buyers would still end up charging the same, because companies can't afford to take the risk of pirating software anymore, the fines are just too great; its mainly the little people that pirate now. Also, game developers wouldnt do that because they generally seem to not be $$$$$$$s like a lot of other people in the software industry. Sure, some of the distributors like EA are pretty moronic, but if they tried to make the prices too much the game developers would simply refuse to work with them. I think... :P

ah ok, well from now on everyone stop pirating stuff!
well that was an easy solution, prices should start dropping in about a week.
Im convinced if everyone stopped pirating, prices would go up, because there is no alternate way to get the medium but to pay whatever is asked.
