That's what the lawyers who work for the studios want you to believe. But watching streaming videos is not making a copy of said video.. You only have a few brief seconds of said video in a buffer on your computer. (To keep the stream smooth.) So it is unlikely that buffering can give rise to a copyright claim.In Cartoon Network, LP v. CSC Holdings, Inc., 536 F.3d 121 (2d Cir. 2008), the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit held that buffering context did not create "copies" under the Copyright Act because it did not satisfy the "fixed copy" requirement.
Another example of how the industry fucks up. Why have a service WITH commercials? I wish some movie studios would see the light and start offering movies for PPV at the same time they are released at the theaters. Fucking up like music biz with Napster....
Comcast/NBC Universal Have a HUGE Stake in HULU.
