So, according to you... if someone can find an illegal use for an
otherwise legal item, that item should no longer be available to ANYONE,
regardless of if it has legitimate legal uses?

That being the case... please IMMEDIATELY surrender ALL your computers to
me, since they are potentially capable of pirating software, which
according to your logic, means you can not legally have said computers.

I will make sure they are properly disposed of for you.

While you are at it, I need a new car, so give me yours as well... after
all, cars are used every day as transport mechanisms for illegal
activity. I'll make sure it too is "disposed" of in a proper and fitting
