Right and wrong. Hardware FTW, but you can and will be able to pirate hardware as easily as software in the near future. As for software ... what is software, really? Software is instructions to hardware, so it certainly will not ever go away if we think of it just as instructions, but how that interacts with hardware will certainly change.
The two shall become one:
Back to software again - with quantum entanglement, encryption, and teleportation, it would be possible to make a secure link between hardware devices that transmits the software from one to another. Then software would not ever be able to be pirated again; at least based on what we know now.
