Re: Simple way to avoid copyright issues
This could be argued in many of ways especially when it comes down to who owns the media and license issues. Such as the songwriter who ends up not owning something he actually created because some fancy guys in suits and ties basically ends up owning the material he ends up making only pennies on a sale. When you're at a friends house and he turns on his nice new Blu Ray & plays this new movie he has gotten that you do not own neither does your 4 other friends should he be liable to the damages that you may have just caused the copyright holder?? I just don't see them going hungry in fact many studies have shown sales have went up. The only thing I have seen in the music industry is many artist are moving away from using the large labels because they can make more money doing it their self especially when you don't got to pay the fat cat.
Also taking a medium of any sort and then "Sharing" clones of that said medium can no way be considered the same as "shoplifting The criminal action of stealing goods from a shop while pretending to be a customer causing the shop to lose said product & money" or stealing "to take (the property of another or others) without permission or right, especially secretly or by force: A pickpocket stole his watch.".
Also Note that some people would not have actually went and purchased the said medium if not for seeing or hearing in the first place. Anyways call it what you want but is larger things going on in the world and I don't think Copyright issues should be on top of the list what about human rights and all the other problems we are facing.
