Incorrect. It would be legally considered copyright infringement. Copyright law is not property law, and both different laws *and* different terms apply. "Theft" is not a term legally applied to copyright infringement -- at least, in any jurisdiction of which I'm even vaguely aware of the state of copyright law. "That would be legally considered copyright infringement!" There. I fixed it for you. -- Chad Perrin [ original content licensed OWL: http://owl.apotheon.org ]
