Another time, I agree with you. Now you have to understand that it is very difficult to launch a software like Modul8 and being profitable for the first years (without speaking of the development of the initial version). Modul8 is a project where the only investors are the creators of the software, while it is good because we are free of deciding the development directions, it means also very tightened budgets.
We receive nearly every day emails from people asking for free versions or discounts for all kind of reasons (sponsoring, artists, no money, etc.) - most of them being valid reasons. Now economically it is simply impossible for us to accept all of them... So the student condition is just the most practical solution that we have to offer a discount yet. In the future, we plan to define a clear politic also for sponsoring, so we can offer every year X licences for some events or artists. So if you don't have money you will be able to submit a project and we may decide to sponsor it with a free licence (please note that this programme is not active now, so it does not make any sens to send us projects now).
Of course it is not fair (being fair for everybody would require to fix a price relative to the money you own, or simply give the software for free)- it is simply the only viable and practical solution that we have now to continue this project.
