Can purchased themes be shared among friends?

My topic title may have not been worded as well as it should have been. What Im wondering is if lets say I purchase a theme for $150, can I pass that template to a friend of mine that is running an oscommerce site? It's probably not supposed to be done, but can it be done?

You obviously know the answer from an ethical standpoint, but for some sad reason, ethics have gone out the window for many in today's world.

 

No doubt the template is protected by copyright, with a license agreement that grants you the right to use it on one site and one site only. If they discover the duplicated, unauthorized template on your friend's site, I assume they'll do what they can to protect their copyright.

Contribs Installed: Purchase Without Account (PWA); Big Images, Product Availability, Description in Product Listing, Graphical Infobox, Header Tags Controller, Login Box, Option Type Feature, plus many layout changes & other mods of my own, like:

 

Add order total to checkout_shipment

Add order total to checkout_payment

Add radio buttons at checkout_shipping (for backorder options, etc.)

Duplicate Table Rate Shipping Module

Better Product Review Flow
