Piracy is not theft, its copyright infringement, they are two completely different things.

Only by semantics, you are getting something for free, that you would normally have to pay for, that's stealing.

No it's not, it's making a copy. In order to steal something you have to take something away.

You are taking away potential revenues from the artist.

I wouldn't of bought it anyway, so there is no revenues lost. Besides, i am doing the entertainment business a favor, i would of never purchased my last CDs if it wasn't for downloading a few of their songs on the internet.

It doesn't matter whether you would of purchased it or not. You can't afford a Ferrari, so you wouldn't have purchased that anyways, so would you steal a car?

What don't you understand?? Copying is not theft. If you're asking me if I could copy a Ferrari, you're god dam right I would copy a Ferrari. I would copy Ferraris for everyone I knew!

So you would steal for your friends and family at someone elses loss?

You don't farking get it, i'm not talking to you anymore. You can't understand the difference between two simple english words, so you obviously aren't smart enough to converse with. farking moran.

Whatever criminal. Get a conscious.

fark you

fark you

Megabox will allow users to download music for free in exchange for accepting some advertisements and, 90% of the revenue will go to the artists. Besides, fans and artist will be able to do business without middlemen.

One month later...
The new Priatebox will allow users to download music for free, obtained from Megabox, with no advertisements. Kim Dotcom, CEO of Megabox, has stated he's outraged by this blatant theft.

You're assuming he knows where his penis is.

BraveNewCheneyWorld: Theaetetus: BraveNewCheneyWorld: Theaetetus: someguy945: Because in conventional theft, you are taking a physical item that is property of the store

The definition of theft doesn't actually require a physical item. Consider theft of services. Copyright infringement is a subset of the colloquial, non-legal term "theft".

Services? It's not remotely the same, services involve labor and resources.


I'm not saying that "services" is the same as "physical item". I'm saying that the word "theft" doesn't specifically require a physical item.

Yes, it does. Someone does your taxes and you don't pay, it's still theft because they labored to assemble data in a specific manner, for example. A physical item is always required in some form or another, it might not be a physical item you buy, but in some form or another, it will always be physical material that is manipulated.

... you may want to ask for your money back for your GED in Law. Claim it's theft, because you got a physical certificate to hang on your wall.
