Why do people compare piracy to used game sales? Piracy is wrong because it's copyright infringement.

I believe it is because of the fact the game companies don't profit off of used game sales.

why is copyright infringement wrong? Aren't copyrights unethical to begin with?

No car manufacturer will make any money when i sell my car and buy a better slightly newer used car down the line. Canon didn't make any money off me when i bought some lightly used DSLR gear last year. Those are accepted and protected practices. Why should video games be any different? Why do video game companies much such a big stink over used sales when companies in other sectors don't?

Actually, state-mandated protection for an individual, allowing them to profit in such a way that does not benefit all citizens, is a capitalistic idea. Communism seeks for the state to profit as a whole, rather than a single individual. Monopolies go against the idea of communism as it allows an individual to profit.
