Exactly. Stealing. They are getting something for nothing.


The SCOTUS even agrees that copyright infringement isn't stealing. Why can't you morons on here grasp this simple concept?

Incorrect, I don't believe intellectual property exists. What you are saying is the equivalent of stating "He doesn't recognize any form of property rights for dragons."

What do you mean making goods non-scarce?

I'll give you an example. Windows 7 Operating System is a good. I can upload my file to TPB and everyone can have it. That is making a good not scarce.

Call it whatever name you want. Call it "rhfhfhdnshdh".

It doesn't matter what you call it... it's wrong.

A distinction with out a difference, additional evidence of your idiocy.

And if this becomes widespread, what incentive does Microsoft have to keep putting out new versions of Windows?

So you mean finding a work-around to give people things for free that they shouldn't be getting for free.

So let's say "rhfhfhdnshdh" is wrong. But, the person that downloads the file isn't entered into the contract. So he isn't committing "rhfhfhdnshdh".

Why not just be humble and admit that you are wrong about calling copyright infringement theft?

Sounds like Microsoft's problem to me.

FWIW, torrenting copyrighted material is definately wrong, but damn I love my free movies and music

ETA: also fwiw, Microsoft doesn't make it all that hard to pirate their software, and that's probably on purpose. The more people using it, the more ubiquitous it becomes. It's when people want to use it for "business" that they will step in and demand people pay for licenses. IIRC, "use it for free until you use it for profit" used to be their business model.

It is widespread.

And they still make money.



Not only that, but there are companies out there making money by producing free operating systems, namely Canonical and Red Hat.

How do they do it when they give their product away for free?

I don't know. What incentive does Linux have to keep putting out versions of Linux?

I don't agree that it's not theft. In essence it is stealing material without paying for it.

How is it stealing? The owner is giving it to you.

My point is:

1. It's wrong.

2. We can argue the semantics of what to call this type of theft.

No he isn't. He's giving an illegal copy. Not the original that he bought.
