Yep, stealing IP were a lot of money is invested is a crime [not sarcasm]. Sometimes I don't understand the reasons of some hackers' actions, but anyone is free of doing what they want if they're capable of.

So if someone is capable of breaking into your house and killing your whole family, they're free to do so?

I think what he meant to say (but failed to articulate) is that if nefarious individuals can do something, they probably will.

Thus, no one is "free" to break into your house and kill your family. But, if they do, it rather adequately demonstrates that they can, no?

That's not where my logic was going. Everyone is actually free to do what they want, consequences come later, may be punishment or not. Freedom of choice and action doesn't imply moral or legal correctness; and it's limited to what you're actually capable of. I'm free to climb the Everest or punch a glass with my bare fist; but I may die in the first case due to lack of physical preparation or get cut on the latter.
