    I'm wondering if stealing game assets a sin?
    on roblox some games got copied and reupload them and claim em as there own without permission would that be breaking the 10 commandments?

    Well yes of course. Stealing is wrong. Lying is wrong. If you take something that isn't yours, then that's not a good thing. If you claim something is yours, when it was in fact the work of someone else, that is wrong.

    Now I should say, that if the point of the game is to outwit an opponent to win, then that's a different thing. But if you are just taking stuff from other people, just because you find that fun, I'd call that evil.

    Here's how you can tell the difference.

    If someone did that to you.... stole your stuff, and re-uploaded it, or whatever.... would you think "Good play! Impressive skill!"

    Or would you think "That guys is a thief, and I worked hard for that".

    You can figure out pretty quick if what is being done is morally ok, or morally wrong.

    I am a game creator, if i spend time making something digital for my games it is mine and no one else.

    If any one steals it, i forgive them, but it is still wrong and I do guarantee, when they do it, that thought crosses there minds. But they do it any how.

    If it was not bad, the thought would never cross there minds.

    Anytime you take anything off the internet that is typically paid for, has a copyright, where someone, possibly the creator of the item, should receive royalties you are stealing from that person and possibly multiple other people, e.g. the creator, producer, distributor, manufacturer, etc.
