May be you think it as THEFT.. but its not applicable for me..
YES, it is. And the law most places says it applies to you. You do not get to determine if it applies to you. It is not your opinion that matters to the rest of the industry.
If someone is checking this forum and got some knowledge.. does that mean he is stealing your knowledge or whatever you got after so many years of experience
I share what i know freely on these forums. I do not copyright most of what i write (unless required by client contract and then it is never mentioned in an open forum).
Everything is available on the net today..
Which still does not make taking it all right.
and you are accessing all those thing everyday..
NO, i'm not. If i see something interesting and decide i want/need a copy, i join the organization or buy the material from the vendor.
when we are downloading songs from a web-site we are not stealing anything..
Very likely you are . . . Why do you believe the artists do not deserve to be paid for your enjoyment?
you are paying less money on online shopping and that does not mean that you are stealing money from grocery shop..
What a load of manure . . .
Whether one shops online or in a store, there is no theft finding a better price/deal. To walk into the store and walk out with product and not pay is completely unacceptable (and i expect you would agree). Which is the same as illegally downloading.
You should understand that you belong to a growing group of people who see no wrong in this kind of theft. I also do not expect to change your belief/behavior. We just do what we can to keep it off of our forums . . .
