First off, I don't pirate games. Second off, it wasn't released at the time of the OP, therefore downloading it without MS's consent is piracy. Given the policy here on the forums, I think the behavior was fine.
If you are MSDN or have a Technet subscription, then you could have just downloaded it from MS.
In reality, you're probably right and MS probably doesn't care. But it's best to play it safe IMO.
