whatever the law says it should be...there are fines.....I create films, videos, radio programs for a living....if someone pirates that work, they aren't just making a copy....they are stealing someone's hard work and not paying for it.....that is theft, plain and simple -- the folks who've admitted to it know its wrong and in depending on the circumstance illegal (the rationalization "I was using it to learn on and never did any paid for work or created something of value with it"....may fall into fair use....the lawyers will have to weigh in on that) But I simply don't understand creative professionals justifying this.
