If I impersonate you I have not made a copy of you. The possibility of harm and loss is almost certain, as it is the ONLY reason to impersonate someone, and not at all speculative… Like a stolen credit card number doesn't make two credit cards.
Identity theft disproves your claim that "The thing about theft is when something is stolen from you you no longer have it". That was the point of the first example. They don't copy you, but they steal something which you don't lose yourself.

I said copy your work. We live in an age where a manuscript can be copied, whether it's in paper format or digital. Copying something makes two (or more) separate copies of it.
