When is Stealing 5 MILLION $ Not Theft?

That is an external hard drive that purportedly has $5 million dollars worth of stolen software on it.

Link to artsy page.

Gotta admire that kind of bravado. "It's not a theft, it's a piece of art officer."

It is a little disturbing to hear an attorney in your role call this theft (assuming the claim is accurate).

It isn't.

Copyright infringement is not theft. Look it up.

The loose use of vernacular in general misleads people, but perhaps is to be expected from non-lawyers.

Lawyers should do better.
