The only way to stop ONLINE piracy is to have the ISPs monitor what you're downloading and then have them call the police on you. That will make people AFRAID to download illegal material. The way things are going, that might happen before the Mayan apocalypse.

You don't know what you're talking about if you equate Widows security with Linux or Unix. Unless you go outside of the repositories you can't get malware or virii.
If you did go outside of the repositories and downloaded such you would only compromise your User not the system.
As of the last time I checked there were 3 virii in the wild that could infect a User on a Linux machine.
Microsoft does a pretty decent job of fixing widespread security flaws. You should always run a virus checker on a Windows machine. And you should use anti-malware software also though that threat can be a lot less depending on browsing habits.
As for the pirate thing, I'd suggest that borrowing a book is very similar so if you aren't selling pirated software for gain then copywrite shouldn't be a factor.
There have been some studies done and most of the music sold is usually sold to people who have downloaded it first. Let's face it mp3 isn't really a great format for music.
If you have integrity, nothing else matters.

I think the real question is how many pirates use legal software, and because of the salty, moist environments, what computers are these pirates using? They must be really good.
