this is VERY different from sharing a movie, or a song online. ... it has nothing to do with scraping websites.
How is it any different? A scraper steals content and deprives the rightful owner of the revenue associated with publishing that content. A pirate steals a movie and deprives the rightful owner of the revenue associated with publishing that content.
Actually, there IS a difference. The web publisher publishes his content on the Web knowing it can be scraped. The movie producer does NOT make his movie available for free online.
Some don't have the money to buy the movie or the song it is not free... It has more to do with financial capabilities.
Um, please correct me if I have misinterpreted what you wrote, but it sounds like you're saying it's okay to steal something if you don't have the money to pay for it?
