Re: Simple way to avoid copyright issues

said by Morac:

It all has to do with licensing. Networks pay broadcasting fees to shows. Your cable company pays a carry fee to the networks and you pay your cable company, so you are in effect paying a broadcast fee. That's different than a download fee since the licensing is different, which is why some downloadable programs (like SNL) have sketches missing.

So it's actually breaking a licensing contract, which while not theft, is illegal.

It's the same content that I can watch over the air for free...

And again that doesn't matter. It all has to do with licensing.

In other words, common sense doesn't apply where copyright is concerned...
