comment Is it ethical to copy the work of other designers?
You're framing this as a question about "ethics", but this clearly touches upon the law (ie copyright law), which is a whole different area. Ethics is in the eye of the beholder whereas the law has very specific definitions and processes and varies by jurisdiction.

comment How do you explain the value of native files to an uneducated client?
You make some very important points, such as "The person that knows contract's won't even try to do this" and "The person that called you likely already knows better" and "Don't be afraid to talk about money".

comment Fonts/Webfonts + My website
Brendan you make a very good point about avoiding legal grey areas. A good rule of thumb is that if you're not sure if you are licensed for a particular use (due to the license being vague or not being able to locate a legit license from the author), assume that you aren't.

comment Looking for methods of showing text or logos on same coloured backgrounds
To me the obvious answer is the bottom one - make the red text white to swap its colour with the background. You still end up with red, black and white. It's not all that unusual for companies to have different versions of the logo for different background colours, etc.

comment Is there a good sans serif condensed safe font for web?
Why limit yourself to web safe fonts anymore? It's 2013 and web fonts are now well-supported, and these of course don't require the user to have them pre-installed.

People have different meanings when they say "web safe", but if they mean fonts that are part of Microsoft's Core Fonts for the Web and/or pre-installed on most users' computers, this is not web-safe.
