An Honest Question

Webcomic Storyline: 

Help Desk, by Christopher B. Wright

Comic Transcript: 

KING: Ubersoft Technical Support, King speaking. How may I help you today?

CUSTOMER: Your product activation tool claims that I'm running pirated software.

KING: That's nothing to be ashamed of, sir. Technological piracy is running rampant in this day and age. Many unethical retailers sell customers pirated copies and try to pass them off as the real thing.

CUSTOMER: I bought it on your website.

KING: ...oh. Um...

CUSTOMER: Does Ubersoft sell pirated copies of its own software?

KING: I'll have to check.
