The police are WRONG: Watching YouTube videos is NOT illegal

Re: They've got you...

Dear Sir,

under section e) I would mount the defence that the user is not transmitting it, but rather requesting somebody else to transmit it to his/her computerised-viewing-equipment-of-choice via whichever technologically available means... Therefore it is YouTube (Google) who falls foul of the law, and hence they want to remove / are removing / have removed the referred contents.

I wholeheartedly agree with the sentiment of the <opinion> piece. Well done.
