True. My point was more about how "digital piracy" isn't actually theft. "Stolen" passwords definitely present a much bigger risk of personal loss than a "stolen" digital movie.
Even so, if someone "steals" the combination to your safe, nothing has been stolen until they use the combination to open your safe and steal the contents.
I prefer the old security term "compromise" as in: to expose or make vulnerable to danger
Whether or not something was taken is almost moot once your security is compromised
and the potential is there for someone to act upon it.
Now if the act
of compromising the security of digital accounts or IDs was specifically
made a crime it would go a long way towards clearing up that nagging issue of whether or not it was an actual criminal act
if nothing had been taken yet
