I don't think it has less of a negative connotation at all. They're both illegal and immoral activities that have negative consequences for those who are caught. I've outlined my argument about this thing already, and it's that piracy =/= theft. Period. You're not stealing, you're pirating, infringing on copyright, etc. Yeah, it has the same effect on the person who it's against. So do first degree murder and involuntary manslaughter. Someone died either way, but the consequences for one action is significantly different from the other.
