Sorry, if somebody 'steals my stuff', that's my own damn fault for not 
realizing the nature of digital information and the technical 
capacities for uploading it across the massive information network on 
the surface of the planet. But yes, I would say I owned it and so on, 
mostly because that's social engineering to get other people to act in 
accordance with a strategy.
