I wonder if he meant to say "inciteful" instead... :)

[Software] publishers often refer to prohibited copying as 'piracy.'
In this way, they imply that illegal copying is ethically equivalent to
attacking ships on the high seas, kidnapping and murdering the people
If you don't believe that illegal copying is just like kidnapping and
murder, you might prefer not to use the word 'piracy' to describe it.
Neutral terms such as 'prohibited copying' or 'illegal copying' are
available for use instead. Some of us might even prefer to use a
positive term such as 'sharing information with your neighbour.'
