Sure it is theft If it belongs to
someone else, and you don't have their permission to take it, and you

this.  And, selling something for an outrageous amount is not theft, com'on

* the problem here is a very complete conflict of interest in the
handlers of the same text. For the scientific author (except, in some
cases, perhaps some of us with no institutional income, or some NGOs)
'profit' (status and success) come from the widest and fastest possible
distribution of the work at the minimum possible cost, while for a
commercial publisher success in handling the work comes in the form of
maximum monetary profit from sales of copies - even pdf copies which
cost nothing to produce but are offered at $35/day.

Many commercial publishers are so antithetical to the goals of the
science they publish that one would need to troll the lowest dregs of
shakespearian epithets to find words fit to describe them.
