Culture change, and people don't want to pay for stuff now.  This
don't mean you can't make money anymore, but you have to go fishing in
a different way, the old system don't work as well as used to work.

As for calling thief people that enjoy your creations without paying.
Its fair, I suppose.

Almost all iOS apps are now free, and 40% are making a lot of money,
like $400.000  (the other 60% lose money).    People used to say that
Android had a large piracy problem. Now both markets are equal in
distribution paid apps/ free apps, with dominance of the free.
Pirates are just undeserved customers, most of them would pay
something for your work, perhaps some cents, less than 20 cents.
