For context, I want to run a small personal gig (offering stuff on Patreon). Nothing too fancy.

In order to do that, I would need to use the Adobe suite, Windows, some audio and video effects, all requiring a commercial license.

In theory, I start to make money. How would Microsoft and Adobe know that I don’t pay for their software?

If I use some audio effects, how would their owners even be able to tell / find my work? We’re talking about basic sound effect, like rain, door knocks etc.

I’ve always been confused by this

    It also disproves your original statements. Most clients won’t care in some verticals. Others conduct regular audits of themselves and all their contractors.

      Most clients aren’t the fucking government either.

      You gotta go back and look at the definition of “proof” bro.
