TrialPay -- A New Innovative Product Purchase System
Today while casually browsing WinZip website, I found another way of purchasing WinZip. They support something called TrialPay. This seems to be a very innovative concept. The bottomline is that you want a software and visit the trusted partners and/or advertisers listed for them in TrialPay directory.
While you signup for trial or free membership with the partners, TrialPay would pay for your software and you can get the software for free. The software is still not free but instead of you paying for it, advertisers pay for it.
I think, this should be a good innovative way to 'contain' and 'end' the nagging software piracy issue which is threatening 'healthy' software development worldwide.
