Upstanding citizens don’t copy and resell other people’s property. Upstanding citizens don’t sell access to their customers’ devices and networks to hackers. Upstanding citizens don’t operate in the shadows of the internet.
If you don’t want to finance thieves, hackers and criminal organizations, don’t buy what they’re selling. It’s an easy choice.
