Jim,
  I makes me feel good to realize that someone shares my thoughts
on this.  I was beginning to wonder where the ethics of the business
had gone.  Why have we LET it become an industry standard?

<<You are not outdated in your thinking, the vendors are.
Unfortunately, this is an industry standard practice.
I quit one job because the owner/president actually PUT
a bug in my code so he could charge his customers for
maintenance.  His reasoning was that it could not be too
good or they wouldn't pay maintenance fees.
If I was his customer and I found this out I would of sued
him for every penny of maintenance fees I had ever paid.
Think about it, it pays for software providers to have bugs
in their code.  If there are no bugs then you don't have to
pay to get them fixed.
I believe it is morally, ethically and legally wrong.
Regards,
Jim Langston>>
