    No. CIA piracy would be more difficult otherwise.
    The tickets are the proof you purchased the software. If you delete the ticket, you will have to purchase it again. If you install a ticket, you will have the proof you purchased it, even if you didn't.

    Actually no, you don't, every time you log in your NNID the console syncs legit tickets between your console and your NNID, (this includes your purchased games, and how many DLCs you own), of course pirated tickets do not get registered in your NNID but they don't get deleted either.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    that isn't totally correct...
    when you transfer your id to another console, the "non purchased" tickets don't get transfered...
    nintendo has the history of the legit tickets, i heard about cases when people lost their ds, or it broke down, they asked nintendo to resque their NNID so they could put on the new console..
    and when you install a cia, it installs a ticket as well, ortherwise you wouldn't be able to install the software... this ticket lets you download from the eshop but it doens't fully install the game...
