No.  No.  No.  NO.

"It might possibly be perceived as legal, where I live" is NOT, and
has NEVER BEEN a valid excuse on this list.

Many people talk about how they want to give back to MythTV?  Please.
Consider this the cost of using Myth.  Do your tiny bit by being
mature and keeping talk like this off our list so that we can go on
delivering fine, free software to you.  That's *all* we ask-- that
people behave according to the rules of our community.  It's hurtful
when we share our work for nothing, and people can't even show us the
minimal respect of conforming to our relatively lax rules.
