From the Times: Publican appeals over right to pick her football satellite
A publican in Southsea who decided to buy a satellite dish, decoder and card and then subscribe to Greek TV station, Nova, for £800 rather than BSkyB for £6000, is appealing a conviction for criminal copyright infringement. She's already lost one appeal.
Now we all know copyright based companies aspire to be different but this is an EU citizen buying a service from a business in another EU country, rather than buying the equivalent, significantly more costly service from the local EU branch of a multinational organisation. So it must at least raise some interesting legal questions.
I wonder if the excellent Jeremy Phillips and co. have any more informed views on the subject.
