“First we recognize that file sharing is wrong. It is taking without compensation someone else’s property. “

FILE SHARING isn’t wrong, its the sharing of copyrighted works among vast audiences that is in question.  Lets not confuse the two.  There are plenty of examples where FILE SHARING is perfectly acceptable and legal practice (the trading of legally recorded shows for example (i.e. Phish, Grateful Dead etc)).
