The industry made their precious government granted copyright laws into a toxic public matter, now they have to live with the resulting lack of public respect for copyright as a whole.
DTV being illegal isn't a copyright issue at all, it's a licensing issue, and is only loosely related to copyright.
If you download from a source not authorized by the copyright holder, you're violating copyright.
If you're watching DTV in Canada, then you're not violating copyright because the rights holder has approved the materials for transmission on DTV, but, someone else in Canada has paid for the rights to broadcast this here, making it a violation of the exclusive privilege granted to the Canadian broadcaster.--
