Laugh all you like, but the bottom line is that you are arguing that  
you have the right to rob me of the benefits of my labor, simply  
because you've found a way to do so.

So, by your own reasoning, if I can obtain your credit-card number, I  
have the right to use it and to put it on Google for everyone else.   
If I can get hold of your computer, I can take it.  If I can pick the  
lock (or break the door), I can have anything in your home.  Are you  
SURE you like these rules . . ?
