it is wrong to change it (since you don't have the rights to do so)
but it is impossible to prevent this from happening since it can't be controlled unless you want to use tactics that we haven't seen in western society before

It doesn't matter if that's right or wrong, it doesn't have any weight with this issue!

It's about one company profiting from the illegal alteration and resale of another company's "intellectual property" or whatever they call it.

LivLuv, one of the branches that the original discussion took was whether or not it is right to edit something for your own viewing. There were several posts about this. As a valid side discussion, it does merit discussion.

And there are plenty of people who consider certain cars works of art.
Fair enough.

Yes, but everytime someone mentions the illegality of what this company is doing, you say that "well, don't people always do the same thing on their own?"

To me, they're quite different don't weigh in on each other. One is corporation v. corporation and the other is corporation v. individual.
