Is for this reason that capturing from tv signal is not illegal. Or it is illegall too?
For PERSONAL purposes, it's legal to capture from TV broadcasts.

Just to add one extra point that I have said before:

Not everything is available in DVD and many very interesting stuff is not. And some stuff is very hard to have access to, unless you download. A few examples:

1) The complete series "The Wonder Years". Here in Brazil they pass on Satellite TV but the episodes are shown out of order, they don't show all of them, plus you have to have the time to capture end encode everyday (I don't have)

2) The documentary "Brazil Beyond Citizen Kane", that a power media organization forbided in Brazil because it was about them.

3) The Original "American Life" Madonna video, which somehow made a critic to Iraq war. MTV does not show the original version anymore.

4) Some rare beatles musicals.

5) Some musicals, like the Beyonce and Santana performance in superbowl opening, aired in ABC and not anywhereelse.

6) A very rare stanley kubric movie, which was never even on VHS.

The list goes on and on.

I would completely agree that downloading a copyrighted movie/software it's a crime.
But it's also a crime letting sites have those things for download and not doing anything as usual.
I can't understand why the authorities don't act sooner...
Even the P2P networks should never have gone so far.
NOW and only now they want to stop the world from exchanging information???
I don't understand...what were they doing until now?
Downloading???
Cheers

Downloading music (and probably other copyrighted material) is legal in Canada right now. This was confirmed in December by the Copyright Board and again in March by Justice von Finckenstein (the judgement itself doesn't seem to be online at the moment but several dozen articles can be had from Google Groups). Strangely enough, uploading copyrighted material is still as illegal as ever, since Canada's current copyright law only allows you to make copies for your own private use, not for anyone else's.

But this doesn't affect me at all... I don't think I've downloaded any illegal-in-other-countries material in quite a few months. Maybe I should be taking advantage of this legal loophole...

Well, depends
Cable modem in the states is now ~49.00 per month for 3Mbps
So that's cheaper than buying ~3 DVDs.
So yes, for some people with that speed (for that price), they actually can suck bandwidth from the net, downloading all kinds of stuff.
Here in P.R., with the damn monopoly of the phone company, ADSL costs $60.00 for 256Kbps Downlink/128Kbps Upload

-kwag
YES KWAG, $50 bucks for 11mbps ROAD RUNNER, and $30 bucks for SBC DSL Yahoo, anyway my syster lived in Isla Verde and now she lives in Guravo 25 min away from the mess, she has Broad, my cousin in Mayaguez has Broad band, so you are just living in the run part of the Island ... hehe... bolive me once you'll get it you wont want anything alse
