I guess we could apply this to winrar as well, and also on most compression software that can be found online these days…

companies need to use licensed software, the free version is only for home use. So winzip and others get money from them
@ Guest – I don't think it is free to use WinZIp at all. Corporate or personal use, both require a license. It's just a lot more risky for a company to use software illegally.
seems you are right, haven't used winzip for ages (hurray for 7-zip). I know winrar allows free use (with some popup message on start)
the graphic made me laugh, the preceding 3 comments made me befuddled.
With software like free 7zip no wonder they may have low purchases.
I paid for winamp years ago. so it is possible someone paid for winzip.
Open source FTW.
