Where is the source?

Where does cracked software have it's origin? I am not talking about incidentally physical theft of a software package (containing disk/serial/manual), but if you want to make a cracked version you have to get your hands on the software in the first place. And I don't believe that they first buy the software, crack it and then give it to the rest for free (with or without trojans and viruses).
So where is the source of the cracked software (with our without iLok, dongles etc.):
Developer/Manufacturer - ?
Software Duplication and Packaging - ?
Distributor/Dealer - ?
End User - ?
