Re: More like a strange tool road I think all these analogies are irrelevant.
The post at howardforums did not break any laws. A URL can't be copyrighted. And the instructions are free speech.
Howard is in the clear.
BUT. Once you implement the instructions to view the video signal, you're breaking the law. REGARDLESS of security measures.
Still, though, the burden lies with mobitv to secure their system. Unless they decide instead to track down and prosecute each and every person who watches the signal without authorization. Considering their previous actions, maybe this is something they want to consider.
