Equating piracy with theft is bullshit. Im not saying Piracy is not an infringement, or even that it isnt a criminal act. Im just saying that it cant and SHOULD NOT have the same weight on the scales of Justice.
People know the literal definition InBlack but that's not what they're talking about. Whether you call it copyright infringement or theft is kind of besides the point, the impact is whats both debatable and important. The label people choose is based mostly on moral steering anyway. You sound like you're rationalizing the act which is the wrong way to go with this IMO.
