    Answered . No, not theft. But you can use that as an argument for extra damages or for mitigating any damages you might end up owing.

    Answered . Well if he locked you out illegally and now is trying to rent the scape with your equipment, this is additional basis for damages on your part. You should write him a cease and desist letter, better yet, hire a lawyer and have them do it!
