Now then now then guys and gals,
Suppose I watched a program on the telly in the 80s and I taped it, I could watch it over and over again without any problems, right.
I do believe that taping terrestrial TV has long since been deemed legal.
Now, suppose I mislaid those tapes but I still wanted to watch the programs.
Could I just download them from somewhere like The Piratebay and still be legal, safe in the knowledge that what I was watching was once broadcast, un encrypted, across the entire country for anyone to pick up for free?
I could understand if it was the latest blockbuster film, then that would be wrong, but something that has already been over the airwaves, for free, surely that is ok.
Yes / no?
