Did you see the movie Hugo? It's got a sneaking-in scene that puts your breaking and entering claim in perspective.

The main reason that people sneak into movies is that they can't afford the cinema. Doing that isn't the highest moral choice, but it's close to the most trivial kind of law-breaking I can imagine. I wouldn't compare it to someone downloading a book, written by a living author, because Overdrive has a wait, or they don't like the paper form factor offered by their public library, or just do not want to pay $15 for a book despite being able to pay hundreds for a tablet.
