I'm not even sure it's the price. What it sounds like is you don't want to be screwed around. You either pay a second time for something you already bought and shouldn't have to re-buy, or have to waste your time trying to prove you're not a thief. Either way, it's your inconvenience and time or dollar cost to do something you shouldn't have to do. For all the arguments that it's "only $145 averaged out over a year", the real issue is that you shouldn't have to waste your resources to prove you're not a dirty pirate when there was no cause for such an accusation in the first place. Imagine that happened anywhere else. Imagine a Coles employee rocked up at your house randomly, and demanded you to prove you bought all the groceries in your fridge - or worse, made you pay for any groceries they couldn't properly identify in your fridge, or pay for all your groceries twice because you bought a new fridge. In any other market, you'd tell the vendor to get fucked and switch. Why is software any different?
