People Are Sharing Things That Are Illegal But Aren't Ethically Wrong, And Some Are Controversial
Dumpster diving shouldn't be illegal!!
Here's some of what people shared:
2. "Making an adaptation of a piece of media from your grandparents' childhood without a license because the creator died less than 75 years ago."
3. "Downloading college ebooks for free instead of spending $400 on the latest version. Usually, all they did was change the spelling of a few words and called it v87.12458281648391846 of the book, then they required it for your college class."
5. "Downloading from Sci Hub. People shouldn't have to pay to access scientific knowledge."
7. "Credentialing laws for things that don’t carry much danger if you do them incorrectly — for example, requiring a license to be a florist."
8. "Pirating media that isn't available for purchase in your area. You weren't going to get my money either way."
9. "Loitering in a park. I've always wondered why this is illegal in some places. The point of a park is to loiter."
11. "Withdrawal of care for terminal illness in some places, unfortunately."
13. "Jaywalking and crossing the street on a red light, as a pedestrian, when there are no cars around."
14. "Taking food — from an employer — when it was about to get thrown away anyway."
