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

said by DKS:

What is "against the public"? It is a foundationally capitalistic business model based on paying for distribution.

Okay, so American DTV on Canadian soil is illegal and can throw you in jail,
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.
