No such thing as Piracy. This is the way I watch my series. I do not share, upload or give them to anyone else. Nothing illegal.

But yeah, give me that badge.

No need to, you like giving yourself that badge...

Downloading and storing movies and series is last decade son, the world has evolved

2005 copper applauds you. 2019 fibre is wondering how long we'll still be seeing posts like these.

Nice massaging of numbers. The really relevant info for an investor roadshow would have been their growth rate in comparison with the encroaching competition.

Maybe in your mind that is legal, but not in the real world.

Yeah dude, time and again people keeps saying that. But, each time I ask them to point out the specific law which outlaws downloading and/or possession of 'pirated' material everyone fades away. And, I know why. Because it is not illegal.

Nice! IMDB lists 3 shows with the name "1943":
- One Russian series (16 episodes)
- One German short story (only 1 episode)
- One American short story (only 1 episode).

When referring to 1943, the complete series; Which one of these do you have? Not sure if you deserve bragging rights, even if you downloaded all 18 episodes?


PS: if you're still on dialup, then it is probably a great achievement.....

Go and read up the law. Piracy is not a criminal offense in SA hence legal.
It not being a criminal offence doesn't make it legal. There are copyright laws that prohibit piracy, it may not be a criminal offence in certain respects but you can still be held liable, civilly, under those provisions.

huh? supporting the government...? SAY WHAT!
Please tell us how to avoid paying taxes for one. Your tax money directly funds racism; or have you succeeded in starting a counter government. If not none of these; you are in full support of a terrorist entity and inasmuch as legal as lewd's downloading.

Legal per its definition refers to criminal law...

Also show me the case where any private individual has ever been prosecuted in SA for pirating (not distributing).

Netflix subscriber numbers are based on “digital TV research estimates”, said MultiChoice, as the company has not released official figures.

Hur Hur Hur
