However, if you take them from a book store dumpster it is considered "stealing", you are taking profits for the store, distributor, and publisher (just FYI).

Though I see where you're coming from I disagree. The items in the dumpster are in that location because they are considered waste. Any use someone gets out of them at that point is just a bonus. Now, if someone were to CLAIM to be disposing of the magazines in the dumpster, but just took them home instead, THAT would be stealing.

Is there a difference between pulling them out of the dumpster, and pulling them out of the pile after they've been dumped out of the truck at the landfill?
