I was thinking the same thing. Though, he could have bought his hardware while he was still living in Canada.
The one thing I don't get, he bought the program in Bankok. The first indication would be the price, if he paid $20.00 (just and example) for the program, but the web site clearly indicates a price of around $100.00, I would be suspect.
He also didn't say he bought it from a MAC shop, he stated he bought it from the bigest MAC dealer in Bankok. I don't know what companies are certified MAC dealers in Bankok, but if he bought pirated software, I don't think they are reputable.
This is actually an issue for the government over there and not the software companies.
