Well, I don't see listening to web radio as stealing anything from the
company.
Listening to web radio is NOT stealing, contrary to popular opinion..

You use bandwidth and electricity. That IS stealing - in some countries
there's even a special law about that.

Not is is NOT stealing (unless you illegally crack someone's password
to do it). As long as you do not use an illegally obtained password, it
cannot be considered stealing. It is NOT illegal to listen to web radio
from where, ANYWHERE, unless you break someone's password
to do it.

Wrong, using company resources for non-company reasons, and even the
time you get paid for while doing it, can be stealing in some cases.

It's illegal to violate company security policy in many states/countries
and does get people fired.

Fired, yes, but it is NOT a CRIMINAL offence, unless you do
something like illegally break someone's password to do it.

Wrong, stealing company resources is criminal in some areas. Turning in
time that wasn't worked is actually stealing in many countries, that's
criminal.

Keep telling people that they can't be detected and when someone gets
fired for it you might just end up on the wrong side of legal case.

It's unethical to violate company policy in every country and company.

It's unethical to use company resources for personal reasons in every
country and company.

It's unethical to help people subvert company security and company
policy in every country and company.

However, other web sites have had services to help people sneak
on in violation of company policy.

And do you believe that "because someone else does it" that it's a valid
way to excuse you for being unethical? Every hear the "if someone jumped
off a bridge would you?"....

Face it, you keep trying to defend your unethical actions and your
unethical practices.... You're just unethical, face it, don't deny your
foundation, you've clearly said you support violating company policy for
personal reasons.
