I disagree.

It's called copyright infringement, not theft.

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


If an individual property owner wishes to give away their property that is their right, if they profit from such a giveaway fine, but their action regarding their property doesn't diminish the rights of other property owners to protect thier rights.

Fine, I'll play your game.

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

I believe making goods non-scarce is a very moral thing. Violating a contract isn't, but that is not relevant in discussion of "IP".


If you don't see anything wrong with torrenting files, then I don't know what to say to you. It is theft, no matter what word games you choose to play.

Does that infringement result in someone having a copy of some type of digital content they a.) Did not have prior? and b.) Did not pay for?

Sure.

Don't forget to also acknowledge that the original owner still has his property. Therefore it is not theft. I mean, come the frick on people, this is a simple concept. I know y'all are ate-up with the MPAA/RIAA propaganda, but just think logically about it all. It's not theft. I know you are smart and are able to understand this concept.

they don't recognize it as property because it can be copied and re-distributed at negligible cost

except of course for the creator's loss of the intended use of that which they created without agreed-upon compensation

not at all like theft though

If it's theft then you are a thief.

You are using a copyrighted image as your sig pic.

Why do you feel it's ok to do that and not justly compensate the rights holder of that image?

It's stealing, Wiki. Period. It is disappointing if you think there is nothing wrong with it.

So copying my own property is theft.


you own nothing but the disc it came own (assuming you didn't download), you licensed the content under specific terms and conditions

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



I have no idea, and don't especially care. If someone wants a free OS, they should go with Linus instead of Windows.

If you think that Microsoft's ones and zeroes are fine to copy and distribute freely, how would you feel if someone found a way to create bitcoins and started making shitloads of them?

bitcoins are fully open source and many other currencies have been created based on it.

That's not what I meant. I'm saying what if they found a way to add bitcoins to their account without any sort of exchange taking place, devaluing the currency.

I'd say that you don't understand bitcoins or crpytography very well.

But I'll humor you and your ridiculous scenario and say that that's a risk I assume by being a user of bitcoins.


Don't content creators also assume the risk that their content will be copied when released to the public? Perhaps they should adapt to new technology and develop a business model that takes advantage of the mediums available.

In order to prevent Watch the Throne from being leaked, Jay Z and Kanye recorded in hotel rooms. They didn't let any of the albums productions go onto hard drives. They turned off all of their wifi connections when recording and producing.

So part of the great anarchist society is creators just dealing with the citizenry openly and freely stealing their shit?
