    it's a legal distinction. you may consider it stealing but the law
    does not. if you illicitly copy something, you will be prosecuted for
    copyright infringement, not for theft. you'll probably get a large
    fine instead of jail.

    Yes, it does, thief.
    Now you're lying.
    Nobody, idiot.
    Stop lying, idiot.
    You ARE an idiot. Commercial software is almost always of much higher
    quality than is open source software.
    You're a liar and an idiot.

    If, as you claim, it's copyright infringement then how do you explain
    the people who go to prison for stealing software?

    The US Code defines an offense "Criminal violation of copyright"
    punishable by imprisonment for up to 5 years and a fine of up to
    $250,000.

  6. Ray Fisher is a troll, out of arguments and legally guilty of
    libel. Which is, Ray Fisher notwithstanding, not theft.

    I rest my case.

    when the riaa sued people who shared music, they were fined, not
    arrested and thrown in jail. the ones who might go to prison are the
    ones who do it on a large scale basis, such as mass duplicating cds and
    dvds and then selling them.

    Actually, RIAA was awarded damages. One gets fined or imprisoned as
    the result of criminal charges brought by the government. One pays
    damages to the injured party as the result of a civil suit.

    Copyright infringement can be a civil offense or a criminal offense,
    or both, however the "both" would involve separate trials.

    "I know you are but what am I?"
