Anguish politely let me know that I'm slacking off in my duties as the grammar Nazi up in here, and I have to agree. Time to shame some people.

You two geniuses
have these reversed. Come on, guys. "You're" is a contraction for "you are", as in, "at least you are making up for the piracy"; while "your" infers ownership, as in, "Didn't you just say your company pays for your license?" The company is what's being referred to, so his company, her company, your company. You don't say "you are company" when referring to someone's company. Try saying it aloud. "Didn't you just say you are company pays for your license?"
If you have trouble remembering it, then just ask yourself if you can stick "you are" in there and have it still sound alright. It'll either sound fine, or ridiculous. If it sounds ridiculous, then you need to use "your".
IT'S NOT THAT HARD.
Grammar Nazi, out.
