Probably, but it's a fight worth fighting. When you live in a s**thole country like mine and companies dare ask you the same amount of money for their software that they ask in the US/UK and other 1st world markets, piracy is bound to happen and thrive. A lot of pirates got older and pretty much just washed their hands off it, now that they have a job and some money, but that's a pretty selfish thing to do. At the same time, antipiracy organizations did step up their efforts considerably and it's deffo not worth risking jail for this. Anti-piracy costed the Internet dearly however, I'll just mention What.CD, which was basically a miracle site, living archive of all things music, quality encoded, quality website, free to use, 11/10 levels of amazing.
