    I dont blame Fox for being mad, i would be too. And this other guy who uploads them must have alot of spare time on his hands to put them onto youtube.

    Heh, that's a funny point about the consumer paying the legal bills. Even better, by not buying stuff, the pirates actually deprive the corps of extra money with which to wage their legal battles against the pirates. Two birds, one stone.

    Fox shouldn't have made that DVD in the first place if they wanted everyone to watch it when the show actually aired. Considering that the DVD was a pre-release I would think they would more easily be able to track the source of the leak from their end rather than at the point that it has reached consumers.

    Getting early release material without the internet isn't exactly hard, provided you're vaguely in the entertainment business. Where I worked, we'd get the Tuesday new release movies the Friday beforehand, and obviously the company that we order them from has them long before that.

    Of course, it's a bit different for TV shows in general, but they're obviously going after the wrong people when there are academy screeners online (that's to say, inside job of sorts).

    Whats this about the premier being six days away? I saw the premier two weeks ago. In Canada 24 is already 5 hours in. Can someone explain that to me?

    The article's first paragraph is hypothetical. That's why it begins with the word "When".

    Oh Fox, I wonder how much they'll piddle when they realize just how bleeding easy it is to get any one of their shows off the web.

    Hehehehe.....

    Why not just find the people who had the pre-release DVD and investigate them. I surpose going after the uploader will send a 'warning' to other uploaders? I wonder......
