Your perception of reality is in dispute...LOL!
Sorry, bad joke...But seriously now...is he gonna use it to download his friends vacation photos? I don't think so, he's gonna either be downloading porn, which is fine from a copyright standpoint, or movies and TV shows, which is not fine from a copyright standpoint.
In the UAE, downloading either porn or copyrighted material is illegal, so practically speaking, he's gonna be using it illegally.
