Thanks for that interesting information Eric. I have no intention of buying anything of this nature, its just what I found when I started looking around, and thought it might be of some interest on the forum. As far as I'm concerned: A) Its much more important to me that I can support the work being done at Matrix, rather than save a few bucks. and: B) Who knows what you'll get buying any sort of softwear in this manner. This is a prefect example, for $36 the buyer gets worthless junk, and is supporting piracy, and who knows what else.
Is it true that WitP is only available through Matrix? As there was another seller, with an American address I believe, offering what appeared to be legitimate new copies on ebay as well. I'll go back and take a look.
