Different end of the cable matters?

So we can record at our end of the cable, but not at the network end? Yeah, that makes sense!

If you record at your end, you're covered by an extension of the Betamax SC case law.

If Cablevision records at their end without express consent from the content owner, then they are illegally rebroadcasting copyrighted content.

another way to look at it, if you record it, that copy is viewed on ONE set.

If the head end stores it, one copy is being accessed and viewed by MANY sets. Hence the suit for re-broadcasting.

lol this is so backwards and straightforward at the same time.
