Once again, an anti-anti-piracy screed misunderstands what a "customer" is. A "customer" buys something. The guy who sneaks into your bookstore with a portable scanner and makes a copy of a book and leaves without buying anything isn't a "customer."

Playing devils advocate. What if they buy the book scan and OCR the text then upload the text for everybody to share. Are they still a customer? Do you still sue?
