This thread has now been summarized and can be accessed here: https://craftbuzz.net/2017/03/08/is-piracy-justifiable/ With the rise in piracy inside and outside of the Spigot community, I present this basic question: is piracy justifiable? Some examples of piracy include: leaked premium resources, nulled Xenforo, leaked builds, leaked website code, etc. Basically anything that isn't intended to be redistributed that ends up being redistributed.
