    Just because its not an original doesn't mean its not stolen. If it is defined as property, which this is, then taking a copy without owner's consent of sale is theft.

    Has the RIAA/MPAA gone nuts enough yet?
    Hopefully they will fail miserably.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Piracy, it's not theft.

    You can't steal non tangible "things."

    Of course, thoughts are worthless. Ideas are worthless. If they aren't a "thing" then, well, it's not a "thing." [/sarcasm]

    No one said or implied that at all.

    The fact that it was not taken and removed from the original owner's posession, but instead duplicated does. Look up Dowling v. U.S and the Grokster trial.


    That, and the fact that piracy and theft are handled in completely separate bodies of laws should say something.
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.
