I suspect someone could get a nice fine ordering that (being in US, AUS, or EU).

But fun nonetheless!

I for sure cannot. You, might get lucky if from Croatia as your name suggests. Smile

If I wanted the movies - which I don't - I'd head for the brother of a friend who had something like 30TB of movies as BluRay rips last time I saw him last year.

 

But I don't own a TV so what would be the point?

 

The last time I went to see a movie was in the 1980's. Can't remember exactly when but it was around the time Top Gun was released. Which was 1986 according to IMDB.

 

If it were a good price for a 2Tb drive I might be interested. Reformatting it for a ZFS pool would be no big deal - but life is too short.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

Is there any place where buying this is legal?

Somalia, AFAIK, has no central government and therefore no law.

 

But in Russia and China is it really legal? Order it delivered to your home with your name on the label legal?

 

I'm used to laws that are not enforced, but I'm shocked....

Russia had no copyright laws for copyrights outside Russia at one point. I've no idea if this is still the case.

 

China has periodically imprisoned or executed "pirates" but usually only when the US makes noises about Disney and the like. In practice they appear not to care.

 

That said, there is probably almost nowhere in the world where these files are not easily available should you want them.

Highly off-topic but since you mentioned Disney, a company I happen to know a bit about since my brother-in-law works for them: as far as I can tell, it's actually a cultural thing. It's not so much that they don't care. It's that they literally couldn't care less. The Chinese seem to think of competition in business as, for lack of a better term, war and as we all know, in war all is fair. In the west, most of us don't even know the CEOs of the blue chips that provide our food, power and other essentials. In China, popular CEOs like Ni Runfeng are well-known and well-respected celebrities who helped make China what it is today - the world's factory. Intellectual property ties into that - whether it's a casualty of war or a bargaining chip of sorts. 

 

And Disney is an excellent example because they don't mess around. To borrow a quote from Kurt Denke of Blue Jeans Cable who I have nothing but respect for: "I do not compromise with bullies and I would rather spend $50,000 on defense than give you a dollar of unmerrited settlement funds." That's precisely how Disney operates and that is something I like a lot about them. My country is way too lawsuit happy as it is. And from what I can tell, Disney has the same attitude when it comes to dealing with piracy.
