Hi Vincent,

The theft is theft of services, not the TV show. 

Actually, as I said somewhat in passing in my original message, the
cable companies can sue you for theft of signal, not theft of service
(you can't steal a service) or theft of the TV show (which is still
there, unchanged).

I.e. they contend that you stole the actual electrons (or photons, if
you have an optic fiber cable) delivered to your home that you didn't
pay for.

This is somewhat ridiculous, of course... but, hey, it's what you get
when you start looking into legalese. Common sense has no place in
