Re: DTV illegal in Canada? What is the legal justification?
said by DKS:Okay, so American DTV on Canadian soil is illegal and can throw you in jail,
What is "against the public"? It is a foundationally capitalistic business model based on paying for distribution.
yet at the same time the user can simply use P2P and get the same (and more) content (all commercial-free and time-shifted), and fall under civil reaching laws rather than criminal.
Yes, makes sense to me too.
EDIT: Yes, I know in the P2P case the incumbents still get to pilfer you on internet costs.
