No, AQ, sorry, but you're wrong. Use of music and video is no different than software usage agreement where transmission of a copy and use on multiple iDevices (not accessing the same Apple ID - in the case of music) is expressly prohibited. Simply stated : if any technology you're using allows the movie or music, etc, to be played "at the same time on multiple devices" (in the case of music, not tied to the same Apple ID) it's illegal (piracy). The problem with this topic is people create their own "gray areas" to make things convenient for themselves. If the Mods want to split this topic into its own thread I can share the actual legal wording I've studied for many years. But it's not really a focus on this forum - but it should be IMHO for the same reasons this forum disallows any talk of software piracy repos.How is putting a movie I own on media and putting it on my home network piracy? How is letting my wife watch it piracy? She can watch the DVD or blu-ray. Giving it to someone else IS piracy. Putting it on the internet is piracy too. Using it inside my own home is not piracy. Letting 10 copies go outside my home would be piracy.
