Yes. And you won't go to jail because of theft because you have not taken anything. You may be charged with trespassing. Or more likely tossed out the door.

Being charged with trespassing or thrown out kind of means I CAN'T sneak in.

trespassing does not equal theft.

If you can't do it, then they can't charge you with trespassing and/or throw you out. But in order to do so, you must have already sneaked in.

Regardless of the semantic issue of if you can or can't, if you do there is no way that you are going to get charged with theft.

and.......?Who cares you still can't sneak into a theater. Get over the whole "downloading without paying isn't theft" so it's ok. Even if it's not theft it's still not ok. Which color crayon do I need to use to color that point in for you?

If someone leaves $1000 on the street - is it theft or loss ?

The real issue here becomes is it the person who stumbles onto a website and watches video/listens to music stealing vs. the person that is hosting allowing the content to be streamed/downloaded.

Personally - its the person that is putting it out there for all to access (similar to copyright laws against having CD's played for public events w/o royalties). You go after the one that's pushing it, not and not fine those that are in the crowd listening to it.
