Guys, there will always be people who rationalize software theft by saying, "There's a way for me to get it, therefore I shouldn't have to obtain it legally," or, "I WANT it, so they shouldn't make it so hard for me to get it." Those people are not the same ones who loot and steal, generally speaking. It's very easy to hide behind "I want it, and I can get it, so it 'shouldn't be' illegal."

But it IS illegal.

However, there are some surprisingly sophisticated ways to track down people using and/or distributing pirated software. For me, the first clue would be that any software with a "Live Update" button has to contact the host server in order to be able to tell you that a new update is available. But hey... that's just me. I'm just one of the people being stolen FROM... what do I know?
