It's a mixture of reasons. Many that pirate will eventually tire of it and just pay, if they enjoy the product. Also, the pirates will usually talk to their friends and/or colleagues about how much...

My SageTV server is still "running" but I haven't used it in months, so I don't know if that counts.
