I don't like pirates, but I think it can be something understandable (not justified though) in some special cases.
I don't support piracy, because I'm a musician and gamer that knows how both industries work, I also am a big fan of paying someone for their work if such work is something that I enjoy/get something good of. They give me hours of fun with their awesome games and their hard work, I support and appreciate their efforts. They give music that I love listening to, music that I can learn from: I support their hard work.
You pirate whatever you want, hopefully you won't complain when you achieve something and don't get credit for it/it flops/somebody steals your hard work.
