Default Inside the Mind of a Anti-piracy Lawyer

Within the piracy realm, it's not too difficult to read first-hand accounts of people who've been hit with harsh court rulings, or the perspective from the record/movies/etc companies themselves. But it's not often we hear the opinions straight from the lawyers, who are clearly the binding force that can either work for, or against, the common consumer.

you made a stab saying its free on Hulu. the thing is Hulu pays for the right to show it, its free to watch but it cost Hulu money.

it is locked to my country (canada) because they do not see reason to pay for licensing here when we have such limiting bandwidth caps.

I didn't mean it was "free" per se, just that it can be viewed for free. If people knew that it was available right online at Hulu, they might even prefer that option given it ups the convenience factor.

Either way, there's better solutions than suing people.

Well, Hulu isn't free anymore. In the past few months they implemented a premium service and you have to get that to watch about 75% of the content they have.

That doesn't mean it's not free... it's still free for current content, and that's what a lot of people use it for ;-)
