actually, my dad worked for a company that someone put all illegal software on all of the computers and then quit and called them in for it... his plan was successful and put the company in a very large financial hole. my dad lost his job over it and forced us to move to tennessee.
i think software piracy is taken a bit too harshly... people have shown quite obviously that they are still going to do it, so why totally **** over some people's lives for it?
oh well, it probably was a setup, and someone probably did that to him or something similar... software companies are smart enough to monitor that ****, and it clearly states he was working when it happened, so it was on his work computer. i don't know, but i dont think anyone would be that stupid -- i surely wouldn't.
