I did not say that anything was right or wrong, other than it being wrong to compare personal use with profit when personal use can be compared with personal use and profit with profit. Not once did I say downloading a song or any form of piracy was ok.

I dont think that the 'pro-piracy' comments refer to people who steal music/movies/games and sell them. Downloading say, a song, without paying for it and listening to it, is more analogous to printing this picture and putting up on my wall to look at it. On the other hand, downloading a song and selling it is analogous to what happened in this case with the picture. So before you get all high and mighty, please compare the like scenarios instead of skewing things to fit your needs.
