well what about the FCC LAW saying that the cable CO must trun on a cable card box?
It's sounds like someone needs to push the issue and make a test case in the courts.
There are more then a few laws that cover differs parts of this.
But any one how says all boxes out there are stolen is wrong.
Even if the boxes has a comcast logo on it if you have payed the unreturned fee you own it. It's just like a hotel where they say if you take X from the home we will bill you X and you pay you own it.
Now that maybe a other test case rent a cable box don't return it pay the fee and then say I own the box and it has a cable card slot so under FCC LAW YOU MUST TRUN IT ON / GIVE ME A WORKING CABLE CARD.
You need to re-read the law. I politely suggest you get help from someone with a background in Business and FCC related laws.
Not sure why you post this in every thread related to MSO Cable STB that are listed for sale, illegally.
