From that page :
Social aquaintances implies outside of your immediate family or home. So in other words you can't go out on a street corner, hang a sheet on a wall, and show this in a public gathering of people you don't know ( even if you don't charge admission unless you purchase a license ) but you can show or lend this to a friend that you do know. An " aquaintance ".
And still Walter this isn't even at the heart of the argument. My argument is about weither or not downloads will replace physical media. If they do they will have to meet requirments from the consumer and have to be legal ( ie. Not torrents of a movie someone copied in a theater with a video camera ) to be widely accepted and a replacement for physical media. Learn to read! I refuse to restate! ( even though I just did for you ).
clearly your countries laws are open to a different interpretation.
funny how you consider its someone else who should learn to read, iTunes HAS replaced the CD distribution model.
are your own personal desires getting in the way to blind you from seeing that the same will happen with digital video distribution?
I have, I believe, argued against this point myself in the past, the thing is I have learnt to change my viewpoint with new evidence, it can happen when you stop REFUSING to see the digital writing on the wall.
"Progress" and "refusal", don't make good bedfellows. at least IMO.
but hey, if your blue in the face, you can opt for free will, no-ones making you post here
