http://www.gizmodo.com.au/2014/08/is-illegally-downloading-a-movie-really-theft-and-who-should-pay-to-stop-piracy/

Downloading a movie free is NOT a theft.

I think this is a great article, worth reading, and it's not too long either. 
It also goes into why the ISPs shouldn't pay for it.

Here's the gist of it:
Quote
Theft is when you permanently deprive the owner of their property, like stealing a DVD from a shop. Once you’ve stolen it, it’s gone and the shopkeeper can’t sell it to someone else.

When you download an episode of Game of Thrones without paying for it, you’re infringing the copyright and committing a civil wrong, but you don’t stop the owners of GoT from selling another copy of the episode to a paying customer, such as me.
