So it's OK to steal labelled clothes because it is the middleman, not the tailor, who is making the majority of the profit? I don't agree with the monopoly that the RIAA has over the music industry, its bullshit regulations and how it leeches off artists. But engaging in theft to 'stick it to the man' sounds like a poor rationalisation. So what? If I steal twenty dollars from you, make some wise investments that result in a return of one thousand dollars, and pay you thirty dollars, isn't that still theft?
