Getting a bit OT, but some would argue that it is totally legal to
receive a copy of anything regardless of how that copy was made or
whether you had purchased a copy of that thing previously.  MAKING
copies, on the other hand, is clearly illegal.

Of course, in the USA anybody can sue anybody for anything, and the
law is whatever the SCOTUS says it is.  Whether you're in the right or
the wrong getting to that point is incredibly expensive.
