    Pes. It's not theft it's copyright infringement. It's still wrong, but it's not theft or stealing

    Indeed. Many people can't tell the difference which is why I fear for the internet and these draconian laws.

    I do agree that the industry needs to find another solution though, because suing your customers is not going to work.

    You're kidding right? I don't appreciate being called an idiot or a liar since it is you who is mistaken. Go ask a lawyer if you don't believe me. It most definitely isn't stealing (ie theft) What you get done for if caught is copyright infringement (making a copy of something without permission)

    If you still doubt this then let me ask you this: What has been stolen?
