@Soulfox -- but such ethical concerns have been around for a long time. Think about cassette tapes. It was easy to record music on them, and it was a common practice in the 1980s to buy a bunch of tapes, head over to a friend's house and record a lot of music illegally. When CDs came into vogue, the same thing was true. And, ever since the advent of commercial software, there has been a problem with people pirating it.
Still, you are right -- the fact that such information was physical in nature (a diskette, cassette tape or compact disc) limited how many times one item could be shared with others.
But one has to ask a question. Have our ethics gotten worse or has technology made it easier for people who don't give a hang about the ethics or morality to simply swipe things?
