Well 158 - apparently it's not a free demo at all. It's available, from what I gather, either through a magazine or online ordering. Distributing it otherwise would directly cut into the profits of the legitimate distributors. Why does anyone want to defend that?
Let's defend the warezbot operators instead - children making no money off what they do for a hobby - and not stand up for businesses who intentionally pirate.
I've been reading Blues News daily since 96 or so, and will continue to do so - so long as the demo piracy and CasinoOnNet/Voyeur-Scumcam ads don't signal the fall of yet another online business to the Dark Side.
As soon as that little Gator bugger pops up on my screen I'm OUTTIE guys!
