You are 100% correct. It is amazing how so many who view themselves as honest, free market loving conservatives come up with the most convoluted nonsense to justify departing from any real recognition of the property rights of others when it comes to copyrighted material, particularly music and movies./
It's simple, if someone doesn't like the product offered, and the form in which it is offered, just do without that product. But, no, when it comes to copyrights, large numbers of folks say if the product if not offered exactly as they want it, in the exact form they want it, they'll just steal it.
It's weird, some seem to think music and movies are a human right, the same as the air we breath.
“It’s weird, some seem to think music and movies are a human right, the same as the air we breath.”
Yes, and it’s weird that many so-called Conservatives have adopted the Liberal, Leftist and populist new-age philosophy that the intellectual property of this age (music, movies, TV, books, art) “belong” to “the world” and “property rights” to any of it are simply roadblocks to human progress - when history shows the opposite to be true.
