I doubt he has sold a copy of it in years. Very likely that isnt a problem to him. His CP stock probably isnt costing him anything other than a bit of shelf space and extra dusting. Better one freakish sale at 30 than 3 at 5...

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.

Yes, that's the one, and presumably a less-than-subtle attempt to gain more publicity and sell more copies.

I agree fully. Having no competition isn't an excuse for high prices.
