I’ve also always defined theft as taking something from someone who is then left without it. Digital information can be copied and spread about with no loss to the owner (I would disagree in most cases with the arguement about loss of potential income), and can only be positive if that which is copied enables a person to achieve things they couldnt previously achieve.[/quote:c8eedce8b7]
would disagree with this on a number of fronts
