Etiquette dictates you shouldn't but the law sometimes says different. Legality and morality aren't always intertwined.

I dont recall saying to confiscate anything. Use is not the same thing as confiscate. Also, I will say this again, I am not advocating anyone use anything that isn't theirs without permission. We are discussing the legality of it for everyone's knowledge and benefit. It's different from whats right or wrong, morally.
