When I recently tested multiple HBO Go streams to different devices, I was only allowed 3. Sharing passwords certainly happens but the damage is kept in check by this restriction.

When the "someone" looking the other way is the CEO of the company, I think that has a lot of moral authority behind it. If the CEO of the company providing the service doesn't consider sharing passwords with a few close friends or family members to be "stealing service", then I see no reason why I should either.

When you let your personal sense of morality be set by someone else, you get into treacherous waters IMHO.
