Intellectual property should be for free. The nature of it was born to be free becuase it can be copied. Someone who copies something and gives it to a friend is no different than a person who did not copy it, and did not buy it. A person who receives a copy from a friend should be looked at as no different than a person who just didn’t buy it. Once again it would make no difference if you just didn’t but the software. Intellectual property is not the same as physical property, so I believe you split the difference: You make it illegal to copy and sell someone elses work, but if you copy someone elses work for free, I don’t think that should be considered a problem. Intellectual property is not as valuable as physical property, so that’s why you split the difference and compromise and make it only illegal if you sell it for a profit. If someone copies a logo, it is not considered illegal unless you sell it for a profit. The same should be looked at upon music, movies, and software. Copying is copying whether it’s music, movies, software, art, or logo. And the bottom line in my mind is if you copy someone elses work and sell it for a profit, that is wrong, but if you do it for free, that is not wrong regardless of what type of thing it is you copy.
