You're talking law. I'm talking morality. So is the GNU site (though 
they and I disagree).

I certainly can equate illegal copying with stealing, even if the law 
doesn't. Try and stop me! :-b

I believe that a man has the right to the value of the product of his 
labor, should he want it, and that benefiting from that labor without 
permission is morally a form of theft. I intend to continue to call it that.
