Everyone needs software for their CNC. You can find free downloadable software online or you can purchase CAD/CAM software which can be expensive.  It's the high cost of some CAD/CAM packages that makes buying pirated software so tempting. However, it's a temptation that needs to be resisted.  Using pirated software is both wrong and it’s illegal.

“From the software companies' point of view, unauthorized copying, and distribution, whether copyright infringement or outright piracy, is harmful because it deprives them of profits. It can also damage their reputations since pirated software may be faulty or loaded with malware, in which case users may express anger with the product and the company. Piracy is also an issue because it can threaten the safety of computer users, since pirated software products may be used to harvest personal information, load a computer with viruses, or engage in other activities which will hurt the user (https://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-pirated-software.htm)".
