Response to: shoplifting yes, but
I agree that shoplifting isn't the right term. My point is that online copyright infringement is analogous to shoplifting in its impact. That is, not negligible, and something we wish would go away, and might want to put in some safeguards against, but not something so earthshatteringly destructive that we need new laws, including draconian new laws that require third parties to become enforcers.
