$5M In Pirated Software On A HDD = Art?

I'm not sure how $5 million in pirated software on one hard drive is considered "art." I can just see the RIAA / MPAA asking the courts for $5 million per 1TB hard drive. frown

A new exhibit at the Art 404 gallery, 5 Million Dollars, 1 Terabyte, blurs the boundaries of between sculpture and skullduggery, conspicuously displaying a hard drive with $5 million of stolen property. "5 Million Dollars 1 Terrabyte" (2011) is a sculpture consisting of a 1 TB Black External Hard Drive containing $5,000,000 worth of illegally downloaded files.
