That's as dumb as saying "there is ZERO link between lost revenue and car theft because they are from people that would never have done business in the first place."

When a product is stolen, there is value taken from the owner that can't be recovered.

What you are forgetting is that your alleged 'car theif' DID NOT TAKE ANYTHING. He used a matter-re-arranger to make a clone of his neighbors car out of dirt or air or garbage or something. That's kind of an important detail. If we were talking about shoplifting CD's, your analogy would work, kind of. But we're not.

If I have not seen so far it is because I stood in giant's footsteps.
