Well, I read this post shortly after you posted it, and have been trying to think of what to remove from what I'd like to say other than everything.
I'm drawing a blank.
Perhaps I could ask a question... What if regular people did the same thing? It is all legal after all, right?
Perhaps we're mistaking "legal" and "ethical" when we approach these topics. My belief is that they are not the same, but then again, I could be mistaken. Perhaps whatever is passed into law is necessarily ethical?
