Even Bill Gates, world's richest man, views pirated videos on the Internet:
In a long interview with the Wall Street Journal, Gates admitted to like watching pirated movies on YouTube.

The interview went thus:

Hack: You watch physics lectures and Harlem Globetrotters [on YouTube]?

Gates: This social-networking thing takes you to crazy places.

Hack: But those were stolen, correct?

Gates: Stolen's a strong word. It's copyrighted content that the owner wasn't paid for. So yes.
