Copying Is Not Theft

I saw this video while Stumbling around yesterday. It was originally made in 2009, but it's the first time I've ever seen it. It has to deal with the argument that the MPAA and RIAA often use when fighting against piracy that copying music and movies is stealing.

This video kind of makes you think about that argument a little more. I mean, how can you be stealing if you make more of something? Check it out:

Now I also get that when someone pirates a video or music the artist, and the people who worked on the pirated item lose money. However if I already purchased your DVD and made a copy of it as a backup in-case something happened to the DVD, how is that stealing?

What's your take on the video? Let us know in the comments!
