Obviously this cant be true.
Because if it were true youd be getting nothing at all, and we all know that a lot of freeware is way more than that.
Again: There is no inherent relationship between an items pricetag or the lack thereof. A product is either good or it isnt, regardless of its price. The fact that sometimes a price IS justified is merely a co-incidence, which can be verified by the simple fact that if you start giving a formerly high-priced high-quality item away for free, its quality will still be exactly the same that it was when the item cost a lot of money. Just like a crummy product doesnt magically become great only because you slap an outrageous price on it.

I wont argue with that. Still to say 'you get what you pay for' is nonsense because its not true, and if anything it is an insult, even if not intended, to those who are kind enough to share their work with everyone without wanting any kind of compensation.
IMO they deserve better than that.
