I think your arguments are false, short sighted and misdirected. When it comes to copyright you can't steal something unless you take away someone's right to reproduce an item or some works. Since it's impossible to steal someone's license to reproduce something (since the issuer of the license certainly would remember of whom/which company they issued those rights to) the correct and legal term is copyright infringement.



Both of you are fighting to call it theft but the law goes a long way to decribe it as CI and not theft. Theft was used by the RIAA and MPAA during the Napster case and the word theft has such strong meaning that it's simply a scare tactic. Copyright Infringement is the official and CORRECT term. Anyone saying "stealing" is plain wrong.


Lol! Pirates stealing from ships in the 1700's isn't like pirates copying copyrighted works.

Use the term copyright infringement and we agree on everything else.
Do you always read things halfway through? It's also the THEFT of Intellectual property...

Not once in the definitions you provided does it mention Piracy (barring the DVD statement which is in fact the issue in question of the court case you presented, but still not exactly a representation of piracy). You are merely providing court case definitions for Copyright infringement, not piracy.

We have sunk to new lows on these forums squabbling over the definition of what piracy is or isn't, who cares it's still wrong, no matter how you slice it or dice it...

Big corporations are like yapping dogs behind a fence. Modders/pirates are the children smacking their little butts and the dogs.

Keep trolling, guys. Copyright Infringement isn't theft, no matter which way you look at it

Still wrong, illegal and slightly immoral, though.
