""Illegal copying" or "Illegal sharing" is a much better name, but then again, it doesn't make the perpetrators look like horrible criminals, does it?"

And add to that that in the US at least, violating a copyright isn't illegal, so it's not even really "illegal copying." It's a civil matter, not criminal, until the violator knowingly and intentionally tries to use the copied material "on a commercial scale."
