Hrm knowing our laws, since it does not air in Canada it may actually be legal.

Kinda like we are allowed to pirate American satalitte

Anyone wanna wager the chances of the canadian gov knocking on your front door because you dled a show illegally?

I'm going say a trillion to one.

Nog ov is going waste there time going after some canadian who illegally Dled a show, when they got guys that Illegally DLed entire tv stations.

What about my plans of creating a system that will download the entire internet and automattically download more as content is available, ordering new sufficient hard drives as needed and having technicians install them so it a self contained network. Selling files that it has downloaded for profit, and payment of storage?

Think that'll get me in trouble?
