Is Streaming Legal?

Is Android TV Box Streaming Legal?

Yes it is.

As confirmed by EU Court of Justice last year.

A recent EU ruling confirmed that streaming is legal even if the content is copyrighted.

As long as an Internet user is streaming copyrighted content online, Then it’s legal for the user, who isn’t willfully making a copy of said content. If the user only views it directly through a web browser, streaming it from a website that hosts it, he or she is doing nothing wrong.

The Easystream media players do not download copy or store media, which would be illegal. They simply facilitate streaming of media content which is legal.

EU Directive Reference

Article 5 of Directive 2001/29/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 May 2001 on the harmonisation of certain aspects of copyright and related rights in the information society must be interpreted as meaning that the copies on the user’s computer screen and the copies in the internet ‘cache’ of that computer’s hard disk, made by an end-user in the course of viewing a website, satisfy the conditions that those copies must be temporary, that they must be transient or incidental in nature and that they must constitute an integral and essential part of a technological process, as well as the conditions laid down in Article 5(5) of that directive, and that they may therefore be made without the authorisation of the copyright holders.
