The implication being that if one does not have a personal, vested
interest, then it's okay to steal from somebody else.

That I got the deal that I got is a side issue from that of piracy.
Lots of other folks have lots of other deals and *do* get to benefit
from their work. That should not be denied to them. So I'm foursquare
against downloading. Just because we all *want* everything free does
not mean that we should *get* everything for free.
