Re: DTV illegal in Canada? What is the legal justification?

What Canadian Culture? we import American Culture in bulk

I agree. There must be some justification to classify it in the criminal code, right?

If one pays for it, how can you say it is illegal?

You're denying the Canadian 'rights' holder the opportunity to rip you off. Care for some lube now?

Paying for something doesn't make it legal.

For the rationale behind what you ask about,

Uh.. Do we really have to answer that question? If I pay for a bag of weed does that make it legal?

Please show me where this is mentioned ABOVE my reply. Not at the very bottom of the page...

Then again if it makes you feel superior that you have pointed out something that I have missed above my post then by all means continue to gloat.

If you had bothered reading the thread before spouting off you would've noticed this was covered on the last page.

Not that I would prevent from trying to re-visit that angle if you chose to do so.

If you follow the link from the front page there is nothing that indicates there is more than one page to this thread.

I don't know about you, but I see "page: 1 2 3" at the top and botton of the topic. I was wondering why you hadn't read the entire topic, honestly.

He must have something different set in his preferences in his profile. I'm seeing it as 3 pages too. Either way, the distinction between "above" and "a few pages back" is bordering on pedantic when referring to a previous part of the current thread of conversation in a topic.

LOL! I'm at one page too!

Simple answer to question. Illegal, yes, will you ever be charged? No. It's like breaking the speed limit. You do 3 over the limit, illegal, yes, will you ever be pulled over and charged, no. Not if your paperwork is in order anyway.

The cheaper prices and better content make US providers look attractive.
