You may say the license is the law, and my response would be that the law is only as good as the lawmaker's ability to enforce it.

So you are basically saying that if you can get away with it, it is acceptable to do so.
I don't wish anything to happen to you like your car being scraped badly at night in a parking garage, or burglars robbing your house, or even strong arm assailants beating you on the street and taking your money, watch, phone, "eReader," etc., but it seems to me that these people, perpetrating these crimes on you, are ignoring the law, getting away with it, and all because of a lack of ability to enforce it, so "well and good" for them at least. There are no morals involved for you or for them.
This is not the world I would like for either myself or my family.
