I find it rather striking how some Christian folks will affirm that software piracy is wrong, yet make concessions to "just trying it out". Can you imagine going to the grocery store and filling your basket with food, taking it to your car and eating half of it, and if you like it, pay for it - but if you don't find it appetizing, just dumping it in the trash bin???

In my book, it's exactly the same thing as using/downloading pirated software.
