I am not one to underestimate digital piracy.
At the same time, I doubt many actual pirates would do this, as they would see the very notion of a Forgiveness Letter as a "betrayal". Seriously, I've seen some ridiculous posts on FB trying to either say Brian Fargo is pro-piracy or that InXile has "betrayed gamers".
Just because some guy/gal posted something on FB doesn't mean everyone that pirates stuff has some creed they stand by and agree with it. There isn't some seedy group of 'actual' pirates that all agree with each other, it's more that some people pirate and some don't.
Besides, like I said I'm talking about people who used to pirate stuff back in the 80s, when it was far more common. I'm sure plenty of people pirated Bard's Tale back then, and some of them may throw InXile a few extra bucks now because they're got disposable income they didn't have when they were 13.
