You could say you didn't know that it was illegal, or say that you had adware that forced you to go to that site or that your PC was hacked. Also, why were you doing this? actually were you even doing this? if you were, I think it would be best to stop and not do it again. besides, why would you want to crack norton software? it's not that great IMO.

Well first, you don't have to just hand over any logs or evidence. If they want it, make them work for it - don't give anything out unless they have a court order which forces you to do so.

After that, there isn't anything you can just tell them that will get you out of this. Telling them "you didn't think it was illegal" ain't gonna cut it. My guess is that they wont pursue this legally, but if they do, don't say anything without some sort of legal representation.

Good luck...

and they wont do any legal action, cuz they dont own the copyright. and just dont do it again.

Yea, norton wouldnt be worth getting into trouble for haha. Besides it hogs all the resources and is a bitch to get rid of.. but opinions may differ i suspect

Plead guilty, cop the fine, learn from your mistake.

You'll get no sympathy from me because a/ You're engaged in piracy and b/ you were stupid enough to d/load a Norton product.
