Sure, but the onus is on the accuser to prove the damages.

As far as IP law, I can't even really speak on any of that because I personally have no idea about it.

Easier to simply say, correlation does not imply causation.

Same thing with pirating video games or movies or anything else. Can't prove that person would have actually gone out and bought the product legitimately.
