Note that when I speak of a buffer copy, I am NOT speaking of a DVR recording, but a real-time partial copy that is destroyed when viewed, as that is, I think your question. The problem for copyright owners, is the difficulty in knowing if the stream is being received to DVR or live, which is why this will be the subject of legislative debate and possible restrictive laws.
Not a good answer; a great answer. Thank you.
While I think Counselor Burdick's answer is exactly correct about buffered copies, I expect copr. owners of these TV shows nonetheless to at least write threatening letters about filing suit and in some cases to file suit, especially when the TV show is XXX rated.
Bruce. This is your best answer to date!!
