Privacy, Security, Encryption It's no secret that I'm not a particular fan of antivirus software vendors. Other than the excellent Microsoft offering, I haven't yet seen a single antivirus program that doesn't suck the life out of computers, infesting every corner, making machines slow and full of annoying pop-ups. Still, a single license key for Avast! Pro being shared 774651 times? That's a bit harsh.

The fact that avast did not invalidate the key means they were ok with the software use. Its not piracy if the developer doesn't mind.
