Pirates were basically thieves that used the waterways to gain their ill-gotten treasures, but there are also other types of seamen who gained the booty of others. Privateers, for instance, were given papers by various governments to legally attack ships belonging to their enemies and take any valuables.

There were rules aboard pirate ships. These would include how loot was to be divided, what chores should be done by whom, and the behavior that was expected of the crew. Most common was the rule that there was no fighting allowed onboard the ship. The arguing parties would have to wait until they reached the shore to settle their differences.
