Actually, many people were discussing copyright law as it relates to creation of ip. Or creativity from pirated works in general, and what I'm saying, and what I've been saying, is that this does not have place in this discussion as an attack against copyright laws in this sense, because what's being discussed here is straight up someone downloading a file and keeping it for life without purchasing it, to just consume the media as opposed to create.
Oh well, if that's whay you're saying then you're wrong.
Because both the guy who downloads a movie just to watch it, and the guy who does it to edit it and cut it and add a new soundtrack to it or whatever, to make a cultural statement or to create somehting 'new' out of that copyrighted movie without profit as a goal, are both equally pirates and guilty under the current copyright law. It's the same law for both of them, so it does have a place in this discussion. A very important one.
And you did all the assumptions. The wrong ones. But that never stopped you from posting them before, so why should it now, right ?
