Link Between Software Piracy and Terrierists?

I think not. Who buys pirated software, be it music, films, apps or other? One would need to be technically and technologically backward and pretty stupid to do so when it is freely available. Is this a deliberate effort to conflate file sharing with piracy of yore when physical property changed hands my means more foul than fair? Is this yet another effort by government to control dissemination of information, and by doing so keep the people ignorant, fearful and compliant?
But then Ars Technica has this angle on the speech which I should really read...
