Napster?? I just watched the movie Downloaded the other day on Netflix. Interesting look back at how Napster started and got into trouble over music their users were sharing.

I've just never been caught. That doesn't make speeding legal though. I am breaking the law when I do it.


But you can point to many, many other people who HAVE gotten speeding tickets.

It was (almost?) entirely the people sharing who got in trouble, not the downloaders. And we're talking about streaming, not downloading, anyway.

I found a replacement for Justin.Tv on my phone. It is an app called LimoTV Pro. They stream live feeds exactly like Justin.TV did. The pro app cost a couple of bucks but is well worth it. I'd be willing to pay a small one time fee to get it on my Rokus. I emailed them about a Roku channel but I never received a response, or it went to my spam and never saw it. I'm curious if a developer could take a look and see if it is compatible.
Roku Premiere
Roku Stick
and a bunch of original Rokus
