Do you pay for the content when you stream?

Is what you stream copyrighted - yes.

It is Not Legal.

Still - Long and Healthy Lifes to those at Team Showbox.

There's alot of arguments about loopholes etc online, all pointing towards it being legal, with not many points to back it up as illegal. Was just checking.

I'm sure their alot of loophole arguments - I would say mostly invalid as the owner of the material whether it is Sony etc are not making any money from you viewing their material and permission not given to stream their material. T

he same thing will happen who ever runs Showbox that used to run Mashup once the American Authorities get involved.

But like an online weed another site will appear.

It's probably illegal but the thing with all these internet copyright violations is that the police go after the providers not the users, so you wouldn't get hauled in front of the judge for using it in my view.
