Go to the store and actually PURCHASE the DVD's. Legal = paying for them.

1st get ur facts right. Bittorrent isn't illegal. It's just one file sharing application among others, if u download and/or share stuff with copyrights then u are doing illegal stuff. But the system itself ain't illegal.

And which ever of those methods u choose it's going to be illegal, since u are downloading copyrighted stuff without the authors permission.

I don't think it's called Seinfeild INC, it's made by NBC, ABC, or CBS. One of those guys.

in theory yes. If u ask them about it and they say that yes u can, (u should have some kind of proof that they gave u the permisson) then it's fine for u to get it anywhere.

I said in theory because this is highly unlikely. Why would they want u to download stuff from the internet instead of buying it from the shop. If u download it they wont get money, if u buy it they will.

It's just like u would ask a game company for a permission to download all of their games. It's just very very unlikely that they would ever give u the permission.


Edit:
I changed my name by asking it to be changed from Mr. Lindon.

okay, use torrents
yes i know its illegal, and im gonna get flamed for this but hear me out
torrents are illegal to a certain respect, but in another way they find lupoles (hope i spelled that right) in the system to get around copyright infringement, and distribution laws by having been seeded by other people, so it's almost like you let your buddy borrow your dvds to copy, Which is not illegal as long as you don't sell the copies.
correct me if i'm wrong but that's how it is interpreted.
and if it were illegal, then why wouldn't they crack down more, and start shutting down some of these p2p programs. it's because they can't, because they aren't doing anything illegal. That girl in NY or watevr was a whole different story.

IF YOU READ ALL THAT YOU ARE AMAZING

The program itself is NOT illegal, depending on what you download IS.

ok thanx everyone. and i know it isnt seinfeld inc i was just making that up.

i might contact them....they will say no though.....ya i could just go to the store for them. but what about seamsons 7-9? they dont have them in the stores.....so....maybe...

nawwwww they wont

o ya i did read all that. and what was with that girl in ny?

and ya if you take a dvd and lend it to a friend, he rips it to his comp, and he watches it all the time but doesnt sell it. no one gets in trouble right?

so if i were to download these episodes....it is like this guy is lending me his dvd's across the web....right?

that is what peer to peer is. people to people right?

so it wont be illegal or worthy of taking away my internet if i download some episodes?

and i dont know if it would make a difference but i wouldnt be downloading all of them. just the ones i have nvr seen (which would be like 20 of them) and possibly the good ones i would get the high res versions.

i dont know if anyone like mark thorpe noticed, or computergen, or the other guy i cant remember but i just editied this like 5 times instead of in this cdase quintuple posting.

buy the DVD's, after you buy them you can copy them to your PC...
bit torrent/limewire itself isnt illegal, downloading programs covered by copyrights is illegal.


you have to buy them, downloading them is illegal. they are covered by copyright laws.
im gonna lock this, if youve got a problem with it pm me, but your discussing illegal practices, so i think it should be locked...
