Is there a point where the software industry's regular fear campaigns about the perils of "unlicensed software* become white noise to most people?
In its ongoing quest to warn Canadians of the perils and costs of using unlicensed software, the Business Software Alliance (BSA) has released

Futureshop has had major problems having anything on their shelves meaning full for years and 99% of the time, it was cheaper elsewhere ... they committed commercial suicide the second they decided that DVDs, PC games, Startech parts and gamer products are not worth selling, among other things.  You can't expect to survive if just about anything a techie might want will be sold by someone else or cheaper elsewhere.
