I think it depends more on where the AUR is hosted. Lets not forget
that the MPAA, seems to think that they can sue anyone, anywhere, for
anything they feel adversely affects their profit margins.

When somebody markets their software/script/whatever as a "pirate
movie downloader", I think we should probably avoid packaging it.
