"it usually copyright infringed by people who can't afford it in the first place, is taking food from anyone's mouths."

Astonished that this conversation's taking place between creative professionals.

People who can't afford it - that's the justification for taking something and using it without paying for it?

Hey, I can't afford a Mercedes - guess I'll go to the lot and steal it. Would have paid for it if I had enough money.

Would love that sirloin steak -- but my boss doesn't pay me enough. Time for the five fingered discount.

Stealing software DOES hurt a company - it devalues the intellectual property they've spent millions creating.

If you are a musician and create a song and sell it on itunes - but everyone just shares or finds a way to download it for free -- are you jumping for joy to help the person who couldn't afford the 99 cent download? No - you've just lost money on something you created.
