Before everyone jumps to conclusion like a horde of lemmings:

When you install FrameMaker, you have the option of installing a

these options, Adobe condones, if not encourages, unlicensed
installations.

In other words, the original poster is guilty of piracy only if
his or her friend also supplied a license.
