While I wanna agree with you, I feel like once you start making money off of someone else's unlawful copied software you're stealing.

Once your legal team is making money off of talking with you about suing the pirate bay, if it's not technically stealing then at least it's clearly hypocrisy.

Perhaps it's close to stealing if you're making money by directly selling someone else's work, although that still wouldn't be legally true.
