I am not sure if I commited a sin or not. If I did, I am not sure if it is venial or mortal.
My friend gave me a COPY of a computer program (operating system for the Macintosh computer).
I didn’t want to install it. I guess it is illegal to do this. So, I wanted to eventually buy it.
Well, I had a conflict with a new program I bought. It needed this updated operating system.
So, I installed this with the intention of BUYING the program the next day.
I went out and paid my money for the program. So, the company received their money. I own a copy now.
Is this wrong? I think it may be. Because, I installed a copied version.
