Yes. But you are then jumping to the conclusion thatthe content
provider would listen to their users and implement the feature that
50% of them had gone to the trouble of implementing themselves. But
that's not actually what happens.
And don't try to split hairs like "well GM isn't a proxy," or "well
there wouldn't be copyright violations because we're not
republishing," or whatever. Odeon would have found a way to screw the
guy, regardless of the circumstances. And if GM starts announcing
itself in any way, the next Odeon will find a way to screw you too.
Why make it easier for them?
