Why do so many Internet users believe that intellectual property has no value?
Ignorance of copyright law?

I know how agitated you are.But how can you justify giving $29.99 for a software that gets outdated within a month? Net runs a parrelel community that in a way contributes to the democracy of the Net.Surely in that sense we can say net isn't run by some software giant.
I take your question to be "why do so many internet users ignore
copyright laws"?. In that case the short answer is: because they
can (so far). The longer answer is that morality and law have
evolved out of personal needs for protection/predictability of
environment shared by many people.
In the case of copyright on the Internet, these needs aren't really shared by so many people. There are very few of those who would like copyright enforced on the internet, compare to those who, irresponsibly or not, would like to just ignore it because they are better off without it.
In other words, this is the same as asking why do so many people consider it ok to break into an unlocked home on a deserted island? Because they're better off doing it and the consequences are statistically minimal.
In an information-based economy, intellectual property becomes increasingly valued. Meanwhile, technology continually makes duplication and distribution of intellectual property easier and cheaper. Put these two together, and you get more and more tension between content creators and content users. Add in the fact that the automatic nature of copyright protection means we're ALL content creators, and it just gets even more messy.
