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!"
