And merely "thinking" it's theft does not make it so.
If I spend a year of my time and talents making a music compilation that someone then takes from me against my will
False. Copying music doesn't remove the original from your possession. If I copy your music compilation you STILL HAVE your music compilation to do with as you please. That's what copying does: it creates ANOTHER instance of that very thing so TWO DIFFERENT people can have and use it simultaneously without conflict. Again you have had NOTHING taken away from you if only a copy has been made.
and against legal contract
Not necessarily. If you loan me a book I have not agreed to any contract preventing me from copying it and thus am not breaking any such contract in making a copy.
or yet worse distributes over the internet to a billion people who feel the same as you do....that they are entitled to the results of my labor
As I already said I do NOT feel I am entitled to anyone's labor. I am however entitled to arrange my own property
in any manner I please. Unfortunately you however feel that you are entitled to partial control and therefore partial ownership of MY tangible property
in violation of the sacred principle of "right and control of property
without rewarding me according to my terms (via a free market)
Terms with which I do not agree to. Again I am under no legitimate obligation to abide by terms you make up but I do NOT agree to.
.....its theft plain and simple!
And yet you still cannot show that you have had anything taken away from you. You claim music is taken from you yet YOU STILL HAVE IT and can do anything you want with it.
I can see you calling 9-11 now...
9-11 operator: 9-11 what is your emergency?
Mummy: I've been robbed!
9-11 operator: what did they take?
9-11 operator: what's missing?
9-11 operator: I don't understand sir, you claimed you've been robbed but you still have all of your property
Mummy: yes but someone else arranged there own property
in the same way I arranged mine!
9-11 operator: But nothing is missing? Nothing is gone? Nothing was taken?
Mummy: well yes but still someone else arranged there own property
the same way I arranged mine!
9-11 operator: Sir please don't waste our time...
You can rationalize it all you want with talk of dots on a paper or bytes on a hard drive....but its theft!
And maybe if you say it enough times that will make it so right?! lol...
Again you can rationalize threatening violence upon peaceful people that are only arranging and selling there OWN tangible property
but that will not change the fact that you are violating a holy principle written in scripture.
Did you get permission to copy this video clip or are you guilty of what you denounce as theft?
