Logic doesn't have the same piracy problem, for two reasons: i) it's Mac-only and pirating software on Macs is less common for various reasons and ii) it's accessibly priced to one of their biggest markets. Failing that, Logic Express is available, which is accessibly priced for most people and is a very good functional bit of software. Just without some of the bells and whistles.
Agreed. When I discovered just how low the price of the Logic Pro package was at student rates it made me not only buy ut but the macbook to run it on. It's very nice to have all the manuals as well.
