You cannot steal what does not exist.
You cannot collect money for things that do not exist.

Or as Matthew Aslett put it:
“If you sell protection against fires caused by others, than that is called fire insurance.
If you sell insurance against fires you threaten (indirectly of course) to start yourself if people don’t subscribe to your insurance, then you are running a protection racket, not an insurance company.”

Sorry Steve and Bill, you didn’t invent NOTHING!!
Just stealing ideas and calling them your own doesn’t make it so!
