How would we be if we take photos of animals/racing cars/people off the TV...
I'd do some research to be sure. But...I *think* if it was broadcast over the public
channels (not cable or pay-to-access) channels it's in the public domain once it broadcasts. That's why VCR's are legal. But...I'm not a lawyer, so this is just my understanding. I do know there have been people selling copies of old television shows on eBay, and I *think* it's legal because they were broadcast for the public to view.
