NZ Court ruling Wednesday July 11 2018

Postby Feralkiwi » Mon Jul 16, 2018 1:14 am

The New Zealand district (NZ's lowest court) has rued against an Android box seller under NZ copyright laws.
The case was brought to the court by Sky New Zealand, our satellite Pay TV company.

As for the content being "Cached", even though "programs might be held in memory on the device temporary", well every video device does this as it formats the data stream from the likes of Mpeg4 or H.265 to a video picture for the TV.

In Australia major international sport is by law free to air.
If you can log into an Australian TV streaming server, you are watching their free TV.
This sounds like what this case is about, internet access to content that Sky NZ has the exclusive broadcast writes to for New Zealand.

Any of us can do this with our PC's or laptop's.

They seem to think the video cache is the infringement, storing / coping the video.

As I said all video devices do this.
