Never was a truer word spoken.  This, my friends, may be the ethical and
operational solution to this argument:

Don't copy proprietary software for friends because that undermines Free
Software itself.

Truly an awesome revelation and proven time and time again all around
the world as MS has gained dominance by convincing people to ignore the
EULA and break it to their heart's delight -- that is, until they decide
to audit you.  Then, the penalty for most is stiff fines and having to
sign a contract agreeing to purchase X amount of MS software for the
next Y years.  It is a very difficult cycle to break.
