No, pirating is NOT stealing:


I do not condone piracy, but this whole "Piracy is thief!" is getting on my nerves.

Why isn't it theft?  Is it theft if you walk out of a shop with some CDs/DVDs/Video games that you haven't paid for?

The law states Theft is only commited when a physical and permanant removal of an item occurs.

Pirates (in this sense) are copying the item not physically removing it...It falls under copyright law !
