That's assuming I didn't rent (and rip for "time-shifting") during the
time I intended to watch it but didn't manage-to watch what I rented.
Put another way, if I rented at 5pm on Friday night intending to watch
on Friday night (or Saturday morning for that matter) but didn't manage
to and instead ripped it and end up watching it Monday at 10am, my
intent was still pure.

My intent would only be impure if I specifically rented during a time I
knew contention would be low with an intent to watch it Friday night.

Of course, this whole discussion on "intent" is a red-herring since
people are rarely judged on intent.  But I didn't start this discussion
on intent -- I just commented on the original discussion.
