I worked at a broadcast station several years ago. We had hundreds of computers, and a graphics department with several people on staff - I was the Art Director. We had upwards of 120 computers in the facility, and a chief engineer who wanted the bottom line to look good to the owners.

We owned probably 10 licenses of Microsoft Office, which were installed on 120 computers, the same with Windows, and server software. When I would ask for updates to Photoshop, or After Effects, or the various plugins we used daily, I was told, "Get them any way you can. We're not paying for them." We were finally bought by a large publishing corporation, and they were appalled when they found out what had been going on for years. Yes, big corporations pirate software as well.
