If I feel something is a rip-off (like with CP) then I won't buy it and if it threatens to put them out of business, tough.

But presumably the reason prices like this are high is that people just say "well I'm supporting an Amiga dealer" and buy them anyway. It just seems to be total madness to me.
I'm not saying I'm going to support Amigakit by paying $60CDN for CP. I'm not an idiot. However, he may have paid a lot more than 5 pounds for it. I'm sure clickboom didn't offer any deals.
