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".

The act of sneaking in the B&E is one thing, but recording a performance without permission is a different matter once you get inside. I'm thinking wiretapping-related laws in the US, YMMV in Netherlands.

Bands and other acts know that music will leak out from the venue, but you're paying to visually seeing the band up close (relative to your tickets), seeing the stage performance (lighting, etc...) and music in high quality, rather than hearing muffled sounds in the distance.
