Has it occurred to anyone that all these tempting blow-out sales at bankrupt Borders Books around the country--being advertised at scores of stores across the nation--mean great opportunities for consumers to steal music, books, videos, fancy diaries, and other literary and musical trappings? Yes, Borders will sell them all at half off or so, but the musicians, authors, video makers ands others who have worked so hard to create these products will not be paid. It is theft made possible by a billion-dollar American corporation. Here we are screaming at China for ripping off artist rights--and Borders is asking the entire country to participate in the same thing. Borders has opened the floodgates on consumer theft. Shame on Borders and shame on anyone who buys anything there.
