Software piracy

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My question is about the Software Piracy. I have seen some software/plugins that people have to buy with cash. Though they are paid software, some of the software don’t require any serial key/purchase code to use. They can be used only if the user has the software main copy. What if the user don’t buy them from a store but get a real copy from the internet. Will using the software be halaal?
