This is growing increasingly off-topic, but there is another perspective 
on this: Stealing is depriving someone of property which rightly belongs 
  to him. For example, the legitimate income from the fruits of his 
labor. When you take for free that which someone creates and sells to 
make a living, you are effectively stealing from him - not the software, 
but the earnings.
