[Taxacom] Literature request

On the other hand, I would say that theft is publishers selling scientific literature for an exorbitant cost! It may be theft to upload copyright protected material, but is it theft to download it from a site that has illegally uploaded it, particularly if only for fair use/noncommercial use? So, I guess, Mike, it really ISN'T that simple!

 Dear Vinicius,
 
 No, you have not understood
 me.  To me theft is wrong.  If there is a 
 law against theft of biodiversity, to violate
 it is theft and is 
 wrong.   If there is
 property that is not mine, and I take it, it is 
 theft and it is wrong.  Theft of intellectual
 property is as wrong as 
 theft of
 biodiversity or theft of a car. Downloading an open access
 
 paper is not theft, it is not wrong.  If
 your papers are open access, 
 wonderful,
 thank you, and anyone who takes them are morally correct. 
 If 
 you write a book, and it is for sale and
 covered by copyright, and 
 someone makes a
 PDF and distributes it without your permission it is 
 theft. This is really very simple.
 
 Mike
