Second, and perhaps more to the point, Blizzard has a strict policy of having the addons be totally free. It may even be in their ToS, but there is (was?) a "stickie" on the official Blizzard World of Warcraft Macro and UI forums about it. It is (was?) probably stickied on most of the forums.

Addon developers do this for free. It's a hobby, not a business. That's probably why addon developers come and go.

thanks for the reply, i was wondering if the mod comunity was dead or alive...
so Lua and LUA and diferent programing lenguagues? i used it once to code a GTA Samp MP server...

I found that Curse actually pays to the modders and users never pay to use addons they still make some traffic and also ads ... so maybe theres a way to get profit without the enduser having to pay..
