i dont think anyone would consider it stealing. i may be wrong though.
I don't know.  I would think that quite possibly if they are offering a special discount as hakaras hatov and you apply it even though it wasn't meant for you that might be stealing.  You feel differently?   Recently there was a way to get magazines for free.  If i understood correctly it was a code that was specifically given to teachers but then got leaked.  Why should anyone who was not given the code and didn't earn it be allowed to use it? 

I'm not judging others, I'm just asking.

I just found out that the person who asked the shaila was about 10 at the time. Look how R' Moshe addressed him

is one allowed to own stock in a company like Mcdonalds that uses meat/milk products. im not asking about regular not kosher but basur vechalav bec it is assur in hanah. what about a company like costco which sells those types of products but is not a major source of their income. i know it is discussed so really looking for rabbanim/sefarim that talk about it

I just went through this whole thread and I am surprised that I haven't really seen the most common answer given whenever someone asks an halachic question on DDF, the YMMV of halachic questions: "Ask your LOR".
Before reading, I really thought this thread was gonna be pointless cause it would be full of those answers..


ps.(Still pointless IMO since you really should only rely on an LOR and not someone on DDF).

The problem is you asked for halacha le'masah. If you would of asked for everyone to blabber an opinion it would be a different story... ;)

Asur bi'hana means asur bi'hana. NO? If you want to find loopholes in yidishkeit I am sure you could, but why risk your olam haba for some money? You should be investing in other things like yeshivas, kolels, and kiruv organizations then you will earn a REAL parnasa :). Good babel?

That argument is problematic, because Chametz Sheaavar Alav Hapesach is also assur b'hanaah (b'mashehu), and it would be a problem with many food corporations/conglomerates.
DDF's version of Godwin's Law: As a DDF thread grows longer, the probability of it pivoting to religion approaches 1...

The individual can sell his stock along with his other food to a goy. Same thing any Jew that owns a non-kosher grocery does over pessach. What is the deal with earning stock money on shabbos?

Depends which market you are invested in... And that is cool. Did they give a svara?
