Sorry Shawn if my choice of words did upset you.

But you see, as English is not my mother tongue, I have to rely on 
resources like Merriam-Webster[0]:
"3 a : the unauthorized use of another's production, invention, or 
conception especially in infringement of a copyright"

If you are on Windows and would like to access a sftp server as regular 
drive, then products like SftpDrive[0] and WebDrive[1] will help. With 
them you can assign a drive letter to a sftp server, and access the 
server from any program, be it legacy DOS-application and Ant's sync task.
