    You have misconstrued what I said. If it is a physical copy and he takes it without permission it is theft. Making copies and distributing something in digital form is not theft because the original is not taken. It does not matter how good the copy is. It only matters that it is not in physical form any more ;)

    Nope, my point was that money has been withheld, doesn't matter what the format is.

    Your definition of theft is stuck in the 1800s. We've moved on. This is the digital age.
    'Withholding' money is not theft either mate. Theft is dishonestly taking something without the permission of the owner with no intention of giving it back.

    It is not my definition, it is the law's definition. Theft Act 1968. As I said before go look this up and see for yourself.

    You seem to be arguing for people to be treated unlawfully on the whim of private associations.
