Internet & Networking It's official now. The signs had been there for a while now. While the west bangs on about the importance of freedom and democracy, they don't actually want anyone to have too much of it. The US, France, and the UK have jointly pretty much declared war on freedom on the web.

Alright, so what is stolen is not a product but an intellectual property. We're getting there.

The authority argument "the DOJ and FBI use this naming convention" won't work here, since what I'm trying to show there is precisely that naming IP infringement theft is a big semantic mistake.

Intellectual property gives you some exclusive rights over a number of products, as an example the right to produce the aforementioned shirts. Do you agree that since your intellectual property is what gives you legitimity when producing the shirts, if your IP was stolen from you in the correct sense of the word (the robber gets it, and you don't have it anymore), you would lose the right to produce your shirts, while the robber would win the right to produce them ?
