CellBlock Re:Simplest solution to stopping "piracy" (676 comments)

If you "found" that painting in a storefront with a big sign that said "Hey, grab these, they're free!" then that would make sense. You didn't just stumble onto software, you went looking for it, and someone gave it to you (assuming the usual methods of piracy, such as p2p, BitTorrent, UseNet, IRC, etc.).
