Shareware: Bitwise Operator: The Plain Truth About Piracy
In the above mentioned English article by "Ambrosia Software", a company that develops software for Apple computers, the company's experience with shareware and privacy is described.

The change from a fully functional shareware to a more crippled version didn't cause people to register 5 times more often as mentioned in the article "Why Do People Register, Does Crippling Work, Does Anybody Really Know?" by Colin Messitt but it triggered off an increase in sales figures.

A change of the registration procedure in the middle of last year showed that more than 50% of the people who had installed the update for the software "Snapz Pro X" were using a pirate code to activate the software.

The article is available via the title link. (sd) (Translation: sr)
