Bob feeds his family, vintage champagne, fresh, wild caught beluga caviar, Jiro's sushi and Fred feeds his family... ramen...

So "Bob" spent a bunch of time and money to develop a product he thought was useful, would help folks share their view of this reality. Puts it up for sale, sets a price that would offset the money he spent developing it, and make a modest profit ... so he could feed his family, (shareholders). Takes the risk, that what he thought was useful ... isn't, and could loose the money he spent. "Fred", sees that folks think "Bobs" idea is useful, and are buying "Bobs" product, and makes a copy of it, sells it for 1/4 of what "Bob" sells it for and makes a profit, (feeds his family/shareholders), because ... he didn't have to spent the money perfecting/developing it. Then folks condemn "Bob" for selling what he developed because "Fred" can sell it for 1/4 of the price?

I prefer to buy from "Bob" and help him feed his family/shareholders because "Bob" will improve the product, make it better, more useful, FOR ME.

Course, what do I know?
