Could someone please explain to me why anyone produces .rar files as a means of distributing stuff?

I just don't get it. You have to pay to use RAR (there are NO freeware RAR compressors) and the only free RAR readers are completely out-of-date.

Do people who use RAR files get paid some sort of royalty for distributing stuff in this way?

I'd love to grab this package and use some of the stuff in it, but since it is distributed as a RAR and I can't be bothered to *yet again* trawl through a million websites and fend off all the attempts to install Trojans on my system just to get a compatible unrar, I'll give it a miss.
