Not good examples to choose. If they sneak onto the field and play ball

both the owner of the field AND anyone else who wants to use it afterward.
But software and hard things like baseball diamonds are too different to
be good analogies.

You're the one who added "piracy, rape, treason". Why? None of them are
synonymous with copyright.
I consider it theft because it's stealing from the licenser/creator the
ability to control the use and distribution of their creation. If you
don't like the terms that the creator makes their creation available to
people, *go use a creation whose terms you agree with*.
