I know this is offtopic , but since the discussion suddenly goes about copy , warez and stuff like that i’ll give my 2 cents :
Nobody will never ever OWN a game or program , because the only owner is the author. (Unless of course the owner sold it at you or a company)
We are talking about LICENSES to use it.
And it IS possible to download it and pay for the license. Even when it’s usenet , ftp or whatever.
There are programs that you can download and pay the license afterwards. (ShareWare for instance)
The COPYRIGHT (the people who have permission of the owner to copy the product a given amount of times for a defined purpose) is something enormously different than the LICENSE.
The method how Dane it brought it (saying he downloaded a .ccd file) indeed implies a little that he is using an unlicensed , illegal and maybe modified copy of the program. BUT it was an example. So so far i do not see anything illegal in his question.
