I agree that it’s theft.
If you have actually tried to sue a store, as you suggest, please tell us how successful you were.
Just so you know, everytime someone says “I’ll sue”, everyone else pretty much knows that the guy is full of it.
If a videomaker uses a copyright song in his video, the copyright holder will send him a letter saying “stop it. NOW.” If it’s pretty evident that the videomaker was deliberately ripping off the copyright holder (i.e. compiling songs onto a cd & selling for profit) then they might serve him with court papers, but remember the guy is probably poor to begin with, so there’s nothing to gain by suing.
To suggest the lawsuit before finding out the facts doesn’t make immediate sense to me. I’m all ears though. Please stick to legal issues and options related to copyright licensing.
