Journal Journal: Defending "Less then Legit" Software at Work

I am in the middle of an office flame war with a co-worker. He has argued the point to our boss that the "less then Legit" software and music on my computer is a risk to the company. He sites the argument that a disgruntled former employee can snitch on us and bring legal issues to our door. Our steel fabrication company employs about twenty people; he and I are the only 2 that are computer literate. Sometimes I use Photoshop for odd jobs my boss needs done, now this fact has become the centerpiece in his efforts to smite me. How would you justify the use of a pirated copy of Photoshop to your computer illiterate boss?

Over the shoulder supervision is more a need of the manager than the programming task.
