Sure there is-but it's not what we're talking about here. (Theft of income would be somebody stealing my paycheck.)
An interesting analogy (to what we're actually talking about) is 'theft of service'. That is legally defined although, from what I've read, the definition doesn't quite fit copyright infringement-but it's the closest 'theft' definition I can think of.
