A very close friend of mine (and possibly more in future) who is otherwise a “good person” is not exactly the most wealthy person in the world and therefore seems to believe that pirating or “cracking” software (including Windows and some music editing software) is more justified.
I am planning to confront him but, when I do and if he persists in this activity, would I be complicit/participating too directly in the evil if I were to have anything to do with anything that he chooses to do with this software? So, say, if he sends me something like an e-mail via Windows on his PC and I enjoy it/reply to i/etc., am I participating too directly in the evil of his theft? If he composes something for me with the music software (which he often does), would I be complicit in his evil by listening to and even enjoying that music? As long as I kept emphasizing that stealing software is wrong and maybe even threaten to and actually eventually even turn him in?
