What is software piracy anyway?
Any commercial software package that requires some sort of licensing fee is considered pirated software if the company or individual using it is not paying all initial and recurring licensing fees.
In Australia, 25% of all software has not been properly licensed and there are entities out there that actually pay your employees (or people you sacked last month) a handsome amount if they dob you in for using unregistered software. Some sources mention up to $20.000 in awards for the person making a simple phone call.
