Is This Legal?
Are StreamSmartBlue Boxes Legal To Use?
Yes, and this is why; Streaming, or watching without downloading is legal. The media passes through your Internet cables, through your StreamSmartBlue to your TV, which is watched by you but it is never stored, downloaded, copied, or retained.
Downloading the content is illegal, uploading copyrighted material is illegal, and copying and selling the material is illegal. The StreamSmartBlue box does not download, upload, sell or store any media. The StreamSmartBlue box has no association with the websites that host media. StreamSmartBlue box only provides the navigation to connect to websites and temporarily streams data. Movies, TV shows, sporting events and music are all types data that can be streamed by the StreamSmartBlue box, and are available to be viewed, but are never stored, copied or retained.
StreamSmartBlue will stay legal as long as the Internet stays legal. The media player software is not downloading anything, it’s only accessing content that is readily available online. StreamSmartBlue does not host, archive, store, or distribute media of any kind and acts only as an index of media, which is hosted by third parties on the internet. StreamSmartBlue in no way condones pirating, and any downloading of media to the device is prohibited.
StreamSmartBlue boxes are highly optimized computers that allow you to STREAM your content rather than DOWNLOAD content. Since you never have an appreciable amount of the content at any one given time, you never violate any copyright or ownership of what you are viewing. Simply stated, ownership is the law – If you download, that’s illegal, If you stream, that is not."
