I posted this earlier today, in a thread that is now locked for some reason: I received this reply, as to why this might be illegal: This is an odd response, no? This person is essentially saying it could be illegal if I decided to distribute it online to 10,000 other 'friends' -- BUT this is CLEARLY something that I have no interest in doing and would obviously never do. The original post is asking about how I can continue to watch MAD MEN with my girlfriend using my purchased copies of the episodes (this is comparable to bringing a DVD set of Mad Men to my girlfriend's house, no?). The original post has nothing to do with mass distributing the episodes on the internet or something awful like that. Why would it, given the fact that I'm obviously not at all interested in doing something that stupid and awful? This is why the response is weird -- it's like, the person said "WHAT YOU ARE WANTING TO DO IS NOT ILLEGAL BECAUSE APPLE ALLOWS A CERTAIN NUMBER OF AUTHORIZED COMPUTERS TO SHARE CONTENT. BUT, IF YOU DID IT ANOTHER WAY, IT WOULD BE ILLEGAL -- AND BY 'ANOTHER WAY', I MEAN TRYING TO UPLOAD IT ONLINE TO 10,000 PEOPLE, WHICH IS SOMETHING YOU CLEARLY ARE NOT INTERESTED IN DOING BUT I'LL MENTION IT ANYWAY EVEN THOUGH IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR ORIGINAL POST!". So, seriously, what gives? What I am wanting to do is clearly not illegal, right? If I make my girlfriend's MacBook an 'authorized' computer that is allowed to share my iTunes content, then we can continue our MAD MEN watching in a totally legal fashion, right? When I bring a USB stick with my LEGALLY PURCHASED MAD MEN episodes on it and try to play it on her computer, which I would then authorize.... this is perfectly legal, right? Someone please clarify this for me, thanks.
