So I read this article the other day. And it is not the first time I have seen such an idea out in the wild.
TV Networks File Legal Claims Saying Skipping Commercials Is Copyright Infringement
Think about what they are saying for a minute. If you get up and go to the bathroom during a commercial break, you are a thief in their minds.
So this morning I go to a sports site (which I will not name) and I go to watch a story on last nights Celtics-Heat game. They show me a pre-clip commercial then a message comes up saying that the video is not available in my area.
Think about this for a second. If not watching commercials but watching the show is stealing, isn't showing the commercials while refusing to deliver the show also stealing?
This is to all sites *breaking* the world wide part of the world wide web:
1. Shame on you in general.
2. Double shame on you for not detecting the region and notifying the watcher before showing the commercial, not after. Shame!
