If he buys blank media, he may already be paying a special tax or levy. I 
do. Please explain to me how duplicating something is indeed, theft. As I 
was taught, theft deprives the original owner of access to it. IE: If I 
thiefed (hehehe) your car, you wouldn't have it anymore. If I copied it, 
you still have yours. How have I stolen yours then?
