I hate Pirates

In the past I have lectured and written about pirates – ancient and modern sea pirates, that is.  Today, I’m writing about another type of pirate – intellectual property pirates.  Just like the pirates of old, these pirates are scum, stealing from those who work to benefit themselves (yes, I found a pirated copy of Surveyor).  Perhaps, if we were to resort to the old punishment to pirates (i.e., hang them from the yardarm), we would see less.  Perhaps not, but I’m willing to see the time and energy invested into it.
