Yeah, this. The law is not morality; ideally it reflects the morality of society but it rarely, if ever has in the history of the world.

I'm just not sure I see the moral ground here. "We want X!" Is not a moral stand-point. Marty agreed to make music for a Bungie project NOT for his own use. Bungie decided to not release that music. What MORALLY requires Bungie to release it? And since it was made for them what makes it morally right for someone else to release it without their permission? This is all about wants and desires not needs. Even the example that Cody used about Wu Tang and Shkreli. No matter how much you think Shkreli is a terrible person he has no moral obligation to release something he bought to the public. Him being a terrible person does not make it right to steal from him. Very few moral philosophers have ever said that two wrongs make a right.
