Legal A major setback for those that claim piracy is having an adverse affect on the US economy: the US Government Accountability Office, who was tasked with reviewing the efforts to find out what, if any, impact piracy has on the US economy, has concluded that all of these studies - all of them - are bogus. Better yet - the GAO even goes as far as to say that piracy may have a positive effect on the economy.

"when you copy and sell "...

That's the benchmark for me also; Piracy involves selling unlicensed duplications not simply infringing for personal use. What RIAA calls piracy is far more broad and meant to be so for marketing spin.
