i thought i could put this back in my mind for a while, until i stumbled upon this amusingly entertaining thread on VI-Control. It's certainly daunting to see the professionals having flame wars about piracy. Thing to consider that vi-control is internet largest hangout base for instrument vendors and composers setting up shop for their products. From lame trolls on Off Topic to top pros like Thomas Bergersen lurk here. This is where the 8Dio drama started, and Hans Zimmer's troll tag-team fiasco ended. I'm surprised they took piracy to the heart and finally come to the woke realization that anti-piracy will never end their hatred problems.
if you are interested in the never-ending cat and mouse game between both side of piracy, this is an interesting thread to read and learn from.
