I recall seeing a topic almost exactly like this a while ago, but I can't seem to find it, so I'll just post this up. Why do you pirate games/applications? Is it due to money? Laziness? Personally, I only pirate DS games due to the absurd price of games here in Australia. Occasionally, I'll buy a game that I think is worth it (Mario Kart DS, Metroid Prime, Animal Crossing, etc, and [in the future] Scribblenauts). If I had the money, then I wouldn't pirate at all. Period.
