There was a thread a few months ago from a Swedish author who was being interviewed. She refused to allow her work to be sold in electronic form because of all the asia and european piracy.
Her son was in the room with the interviewer and interrupted by asking his mom why she got him to fill her iPod with all the pirated music a few weeks earlier if piracy upset her so much.
The most rabid anti-smokers I meet are people who used to smoke. I suspect if you searched the computer or iPod of most anti-piracy advocates you would find a lot of pirated material. They tend to over-compensate because of their guilt.
