Oh, you're one of those types.
Way I see it, if the show airs on a channel I normally get anyway, what's the difference if I download it later?
The way you see it doesn't cut the mustard. A TV channel pays for that show, and hosts adverts to recoup their costs and make a little money. You're not seeing the ads which pay for the show, therefore you're seeing the content without paying for it (you pay by watching the adverts).
Don't get me wrong, I do this too when I can't obtain the show another way; but I'm under NO illusion as to the legality of what I'm doing. If people continue to do this, the people who make the shows are going to stop making them because they're not earning enough money to make it worth doing so. I would gladly pay to download and watch the few shows I do grab, if I could. The only shows I ever have zero guilt about downloading are BBC made shows, because as a TV licensee, I -have- paid for those shows.
Whilst EZTV aren't hosting the illegal content themselves, they ARE enabling people to access it much easier. Therefore, whilst the site can't be shut down directly, they CAN take the route of making it harder for the average person to access it.
