That seems like a problem with people rather than the idea of trying games for free. All ideas can be corrupted and/or exploited by things like greed but that doesn't really affect the merits of those ideas. That's like banning free speech because there are people who say stupid things. Or banning the internet because there are people who use it for child porn. Or banning cars because there are people who can't drive responsibly.

And people try to ban language all the time, or shun those whose language does not fit their ideals. The ability to drive a car is controlled pretty heavily through a license, testing and insurance requirements. Similarly instead of trusting the honor system with a mass-market product, publishers are going to want to force purchasing.

I'm not really saying I agree with it, I'm just saying that's why they don't simply accept what you do and thank you when you purchase. Well, that and they want you to buy the crappy games too.
