As for that dude selling the stuff without anyones permission, complain to his ISP and they will do all the hard work for you, maybe...
Hmm, read ANY copyright disclaimer and it will say words to the effect of 'you cannot make unauthorised copies'.
This means that even if you own the original - you are still NOT allowed to make or download a copy. Any type of copying without permission is illegal unless you have been given specific permission.
That was an urban myth spread by haxx0rz to haze over the illegality of their warez.
