So it's OK to lie as long as the NFL gets paid? So as I said before, you are picking and choosing when it's OK to do something wrong.
just posted you are taking something by not subscribing for a 2 yr subscription so you are essentially stealing from DirectTV by answering NO.
As you can see by our back and forth my point is, if something isn't illegal each person has to decide for themselves what's morally right and wrong. Telling someone they are doing something that is legal (for them not the people originating the stream), but wrong and then justifying what you're doing is the same thing. Each person is doing something legal but morally wrong depending how it's defined by each person. You define it as OK to lie as long as someone is getting paid some amount (though loosing out on 2 yrs of subscription fees) while others define it as OK since they are not the one originating the stream.
Isn't it a throwing stones glasses houses thing when you tell someone they are stealing and doing the same yourself.
