Is downloading copyright music equal to stealing?

There is a great debate on the PBS (GASP!) website on whether downloading music from the Internet is actually stealing. The questions were possed by readers of Slashdot. Representing the side that this aurthor falls on is Lawrence Lessig from Stanford Law School. Representing the RIAA is one of their lawyers, Matt Oppenheim. When you read the article, pay attention to the questions and the answers. I wonder if you get the same creepy feeling that I do when you read Matts responses that he is somehow avoiding actually answering the question in only the way a lawyer can do? Tell us what you think when you are done reading it.
