Depends really.

Is the person breaking into the server (printing press in your example) and sabotaging it?

No. They are placing duct tape over the ads of the magazine/newspaper in their own home.

The problem with these kind of analogies is that they never work out.

Your vandalism analogy doesn't work here either, because its more like I'm taking a snapshot of the billboard in question and then altering it on my own machine.

Once the data hits the end users computer, all bets are off.

Does it ****? Yes. Is there anything that you can do about it? Not much.
