It definitely raises an interesting question regarding the legality of it all. I agree with you that under current fan editing rules, if you proved you have a subscription to the relevant streaming service, that would prove that you have purchased that product/service in a similar vein as owning a physical copy of the movie/show of the fan edit, and in effect not taking away from their revenue. But yeah, it is a flimsy gray area regardless.
Well said. As far as proof of ownership, I suppose we have to rely on the honer system. On the other hand, I don’t think there’s any doubt that we all own the discs, have the subscriptions, etc.
But as was said in the earlier post, as media moves from an ownership model to a subscription, and with digital ownership of these films/shows on iTunes, Amazon, and the rest, I suspect this is something that will keep coming up.
