Re: Why we are not opposing motion on Monday.
If I don't leave the store, it's not theft.
Irrespective of "other customers", have I not robbed the creator of the paper of MY sale?
Creative destruction is a good phrase. However renaming the act doesn't particularly solve the problem - and I'll look forward to further thoughts when you post.
So - everyone got their popcorn ready for later?
Yes, you have robbed the creator, I thought it best to show "other customers".
However, by definition it is still theft, theft is complete as per Sec. 322 (2) CCC - A person commits theft when, with intent to steal anything, he moves it or causes it to move or to be moved, or begins to cause it to become movable.
Of course the key word here is "intent", extremely hard to prove, if not impossible, in this example.
