Re: I WANT A STRAGT ANSEWER!

Why are we arguing? Simple fact is its not in there now, and there is a very good chance it wont ever be in. No need to argue. that wont do anyone any good. If the feature ever does come into Home then it does. But as for right now, its not in there. NO need to argue about why or why its not or should be in there because simple fact is its not in there

I think this will all really come down to whether the law sees your apartment in Home as a private or public place.  You're not legally allowed to show a movie at your office, a restaurant, a summer camp, the public library, your day-care facility, the park, your church, your school bus, etc. without paying $300 - $500 for a Public Performance License.  Do people break that law all the time?  Sure.  Does Sony want to get sued into the stone age over allowing people to do it on their service? No. 

 

The law says that any location outside of your home is considered public for copyright purposes, and even a closed-circuit transmission is deemed a public performance of the work.  So really the only way Sony will ever, ever, ever be able to legally let you stream stuff to other people in your Home apartment is to either pay a massive amount of 'blanket licensing' money to cover everyone, or to get your virtual space on their services recognized legally as a private residence.  I don't know that either of those situations is very likely.  I suspect that, at best, Sony would allow you to watch stuff you bought in the PSN Store with other people who also bought the same video... maybe.

I heard something said about streaming content thats on your playstation at one time but i never heard anything about streaming movies. It won't be possible for them to allow streaming of anything copyrighted. That will be the issue for them is being able to seperate what is allowable and what isn't.

Sure, but last time I checked, I didn't own any movies.  I suspect you don't own any either. All you own is a piece of plastic with an authorized copy of the movie on it.  That doesn't give you the right to do diddly squat except watch that movie at your house. Period.  Keep in mind that owning a DVD or CD and owning the intellectual property encoded on it are two entirely different things in the eyes of the law, regardless of whether we agree with it or not.

It is not a LEGAL (not legule) issue.  It is just a RUMOR (not roomer).  Want proof?  Clubhouse were just recently added.  They were added LONG after the whole "video sharing removed for legal issues" rumor was started.  And in clubhouses, there are flatscreen TV's mounted on the wall.  Now why would they add this to a brand new feature if there is absolutely no use for it?  There may be a chance that they limit video sharing to clubhouses only, but video sharing WILL be added at a later date in one form or another.

This is normally where I state that throwing a bunch of random words into a pile does not constitute a sentance.  However, i cannot say that here because at no point in your thread did you type even so much as one complete word.  What The Hell????

This isnt my thread, it was my REPLY.

A thread is not the same as a reply.

 

My reply was in jest, in regards to the OPs murdering of the english language.

What the hell ( no need to put caps on the H) indeed.
