Ben Franklin never patented anything.
The Disney company will send thugs if you make a picture of Mickey Mouse.
Everyone else is in between.
I have not spoken with the Quickload author, but I have spoken with the guy at http://www.neconos.com/
when I update Quickload.
These are nice people, and I am told the author reads the American gun forums.
I have bought two copies of Quickload, one for me in WA and one for me when I am in MT. That is because I don't want to call my wife and ask her to turn on my computer.
I would pay 10X or 20X the current price to get Quickload, if I had to.
Running QL calculations is happening on lots of gun forums. That has got to be a mixture of QL loosing money and QL making money with publicity.

I started out a month a ago to develop a 9mm load. I kept track of
powders, powder charge, bullet, and overall length with a spread sheet.
Someone with Quick Load software helped me with the inner ballistics of
some of the loads.
Within two months, I bought my own copy of Quickload.
