How can he possibly defend this. Why bother even trying.
You're right, there is no defense. It's just plain evil. However, by way of understanding:
- It's possible "Deny" is a child, and hasn't learned how incredibly wrong his actions are;
- Deny may come from a culture that does not respect intellectual property at all, and anything he can get his hands on is fair game.
Of course, I believe Occam's Razor applies: he does it because he can and because there are no consequences for being caught.
