Re: [DMCForum] Copyright

Oh, come on, Ryan.  You know what I'm saying.

Actively skipping commercials by leaving the room or hitting ffwd on a
TiVo or VCR is different from passively having them already removed from
a Torrented capture.

I'm not presuming that you *watch* the commercials on over-the-air TV,
but you must admit that at least they have a chance to get you to buy
Tide or whatever when the commercials exist.  Once you edit the
commercials out, their sponsors' advertising dollars become wasted (at
least the small portion spent to sway you).

Don't get me wrong: 80% of the TV shows I watch are downloaded and 19%
are via TiVo.  But I do recognize why TV studios consider downloading
"free" TV shows illegal.  Surely you don't really think they're giving
them away for free...
