Electronic data like a song or movie is a specific series of 1's and 0's that another human being created as a product to sell. You're supporting taking their effort for nothing.You cannot steal a thought, you can only steal the paper it's written on, unless of course you copied it. Patents and copyrights are very oppressive.
That just doesn't even make any ****ing sense.If you support retaliation against copyright infringement then I should be able to put a post it note on my face saying that the make up I applied and the face I am making is my creation and by making eye contact with me you agree to pay me $500 and if you don't I should be able to throw you in jail for doing an illegal download of my face into your memory.
It's silly for about a thousand other reasons too."Oh that's silly. You can't possibly enforce that."
No, nobody was making that argument either.I'll have my friend take video evidence and if everyone in attendance doesn't pay me $500 dollars each to view my video I'll throw the jury, the judge, the bailiff, everyone in the gallery and my own lawyer to the gallows too.
"Your stupid point is moot is because the law--"
The law?! Ah yes, of course, "the law". I forgot. The almighty law determines ethics for everyone. Screw right or wrong. Let's just continue to elect barf bucket congressmen to misrepresent us to change the law so that we can argue constitutionality instead of ethics.
Seriously, your face metaphor is downright retarded. Brains aren't computers, memories aren't products. If we're going with your ridiculous scenario I could just as easily say you are guilty of damaging my memories by having photons bounce off your face and enter my cornea, sending signals through my optic nerve into my brain, forcing the imprint of your face into MY head! Or maybe because you placed that note on your forehead, you are agreeing to the laws of physics that dictate photons will bounce off it and hit my eyes, so you've given me implied consent to use your stupid note.
Hey, since we're in stupid extrapolation of stupid situations world, here's another one:
You support being able to steal the products of other people's labors. Clearly, then, you also support my going down to the Ferrarri dealership and taking a car. After all, property laws are oppressive!
Just admit it: You want **** that other people make for free. I thought libertarians were supporters of that free market stuff, but implementing your ideal position would hinder business.
