Do you feel there is any way to justify pirating a game?

If so, what reason? No money? Bad title? Shady publisher?

The only justification I can give is to "Test" a game that doesn't have a Demo or lacks a demo that is properly representative of the game. And, this only applies to the PC market, where a game can simply not work on your system for a slew of various reasons.

And before people jump my s***: I'm saying this is one possible justification, not that it somehow makes it "OK" to go out and pirate everything you see just to say you're "Testing" it.

A new company buys the rights and sells for money years later without changing anything to the game

It's not like the pirate stole a physical copy that took manpower to make.

Too old that even if you find it to buy, you know none of the money is going to the devs or publisher
