Legal Despite doing what I think are some great things for the American people, the Obama administration has a dark side. Joe Biden and many others on staff come straight from the RIAA camp, and it shows. Today, the Obama administration disregarded every US law relating to theft and copyright by stating that piracy is "flat, unadulterated theft".

Yes, it is theft, I fully agree.

The real reason for this debate ("if piracy is theft or not"), is, as always, money.

By pirating, some people are derived of money they would have if their stuff was not pirated.

By pirating, some people enjoy goods that did not pay for.

Piracy is theft.

Let's be honest for a minute. The only reason we, the common folks, say it is not is because we want to justify our behavior, i.e. the illegal downloading of software, songs, etc.
