That's like saying I deprive wal-mart of sales because I buy from Target or vice versa. You're can't be deprived of something that you never had.
No, it isn't. That's silly. We're not talking about a situation where you decide to buy someoene else's game or song or whatever. You decide to take it from ME without paying.
How does it make me a dick to share my own property? I bought the copy and the copy is mine, so I fail to understand how making a copy of it makes me a dick. It is also only a possibility that people would have bought the product from an establishment that would benefit the original owner, not a sure thing.
It makes you dick for the reasons I already told you. You're not "sharing your property." You're making copies and spreading them around. Why would you do that?
Like I said, if you don't retain a copy for yourself, then there's no problem with you giving away or selling your copy. But that's not what you're describing.
