Note that ebook piracy is not moral, but distributing a document being sensored by a government might be.
Morality is a moving target and is cultural-based. In some cultures, eating your family members when they died was considered normal and the height of respect.
Avoiding illegal acts seems to be based on the penalties involved. Most drivers exceed the speed limit which is illegal and get upset when they get a photo radar ticket or get pulled over. So most people condone this illegality.
