Some that cry piracy (corporations) stole the concepts and code from
other corporations. Piracy has to be defined in different terms before
it is of any importance at all. To me, piracy is just a buzzword for
those that can legally steal from others, then have all the resources
from their acts of stealing from others (money and political clout),
then cry about another's actions.
Netscape, stacker, Apple, pctools and so many other comanies were put
out from one of the best known pirate corporatiions of all, next only to
oil and the trilateral commission.
