Eighth Commandment


I’m always amused by the arguments people make to avoid saying they stole. They were “inspired by” or “paying homage to.” They “borrowed liberally” or “copyright infringed,” but they never stole. I know (before you reply with a thousand comments) that there are differences, but at the end of the day you’re playing semantics. Did you take something (including a copy) without paying or giving credit? Yep, then you stole.

JABEZ: Rick, what do you think is meant by the eighth commandment? "Thou shalt not steal."

P.A. ANNOUNCER: He's safe! He's safe! Good Lord, I can't believe he just stole third!

P.A. ANNOUNCER: Uh oh, here comes Jesus out of the dugout and he does not look happy.
PLAYER: Quick, call me out! Say I borrowed or copyright infringed--anything but stole!
