Good enough! I figured as much ... :) So, I did not worry
about it ... the laptop failure happened over 9 or 10 months

Thanks for the reassurance though!

It never fails me to amaze me that people think that what
they are doing is legal (and not a violation of the license
terms that they agreed to) and also dumb enough to think
that they would not be caught.

Sad ...
