You have all the right to that opinion, and to advocate changes
to copyright law (which indeed has some murky aspects which I'd
want to see changed).
OTOH, saying that something isn't stealing just amounts to
trying to redefine the meaning of that word so it's more or
pointless. And stating that an author who publishes his work
voluntarily gives up any ability to control it is little more
than whishfull thinking - just ask the author, who probably
knows his/her own intentions better that you do.
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
