Why would you want to do that?

Piracy didn't hurt Adobe when Photoshop got pirated the shit out of. In fact, it lead to more legitimate sales, especially by institutions.

Well yes adobe made more money. Few have the knowledge to pirate the software. Some don't know how to protect software so they prefer web apps and they host them in their offices instead of using a third party hosting service.
