Stump the Lawyer: Netflix and Hulu Sharing


PRESSURE BUT IT’LL FEEL NICE. 70 DEGREES IN SAN FRANCISCO FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK. I WILL TAKE IT. ALL RIGHT. OUR GOOD FRIEND, CRAIG ASHTON FROM ASHTON AND PRICE HERE. GOOD MORNING TO YOU. NICE TO SEE YOU. THE POISE THANKFUL MOOD THIS MORNING. MAYBE HANGING UPSIDE DOWN. THAT HELP WAS THE BRAIN, MAKES YOU TALLER, HELPS MY BACK. MY PIG AND MY DOG. THESE ARE ALL TRUE STATEMENTS. WE WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THIS. HERE IS SOMETHING WE WANT TO GET YOUR OPINION ON. WE HEARD THIS. A NETFLIX PASSWORD, SHARING IT MAY BE A FEDERAL CRIME. THAT IS WE ARE HEARING HOW SOME ARE SEEING THIS FEDERAL RULING HACKING CASE. A GUY USED A FORMER CO WORKER’S PASSWORD TO GET INTO HIS OLD COMPANY SYSTEM AND THE COURTED RULED THAT USING THAT PASSWORD VIOLATED THE COMPUTER FRAUD AND ABUSE ACT. A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE WONDERING WHEN IT COMES TO SHARING OTHER TYPES OF PASSWORDS FOR NETFLIX CAN THE FBI HUNT PEOPLE DOWN? POSSIBLY. WE ALL UNDERSTAND TRESPASS. THIS IS TRESPASSING IN TO A COMPUTER — THINK ABOUT YOUR PROPERTY. IN MY OFFICE WE HAVE A COMPUTER SYSTEM THAT IS A KURTOSIS TEMPERATURE WITH A CODE. ALL OF OUR EMPLOYEE TAKES HAVE. IF ONE OF THEM GIVE ITSELF TO THEIR COUSIN WHO COMES IN ON THE WEEKEND AND GETS IN TO MY OFFICE THAT’S A TRESPASS. THEY TOOK INFORMATION THAT LET MEMORANDUM HAVE ACCESS TO MY OFFICE AND GAVE IT TO SOMEONE ELSE WITHOUT AUTHORITY TO GET IN. WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT A COMPUTER SYSTEM WHICH IS A COMPANY SYSTEM AN EMPLOYEE GIVE ITSELF TO SOMEONE ELSE TO ACCESS SOMETHING THEY AREN’T ALLOWED TO USE THAT COULD BE CONSIDERED FRAUD OR MISREPRESENTATION TO GET INTO SOMETHING THAT YOU DON’T HAVE AUTHORITY TO BE ON. THE IDEA WHEN YOU DEAL WITH NETFLIX AND THE OTHER THING SOCIAL SECURITY LOOK AT YOUR CONTRACT. WHAT THE COMPANY IS WORRIED ABOUT IS THAT YOU GIVE YOUR PASSWORD TO LET’S SAY, A COUSIN WHO ISN’T ALLOWED TO USE IT AND YOU GO OUT OF TOWN AND THEY DRINK ALL WEEKEND AND ORDER 2,000 MOVIES AND THEN YOU SAY THAT WASN’T ME. THERE WILL BE A BREACH OF CONTRACT ISSUE AND WHETHER OR NOT THEY ACCESS THAT WITH YOUR AUTHORITY AND THAT’S A FRAUD ISSUE. I WOULD SAY FROM A PRACTICAL THING DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE FBI. THEY HAVE BIGGER THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT BUT IT’S COMMON SENSE AND AUTHORITY TO USE SOMETHING. IF THE CONTRACT SAYS SPECIFICALLY THIS IS AN AGREE HELICOPTER BETWEEN YOU AND NETFLIX OR HULU AND YOU MAY NOT TRANSFER THIS JUST LIKE MY AMERICAN EXPRESS CARD. I CAN’T JUST GIVE IT — I COULD. I WOULD ACCEPT. I DON’T ORDER THAT LOUIS VITTON. IT’S AUTHORITY TO USE SOMETHING THAT YOU ARE USINGA EXPERIENCE. THE CONTRACT SAYS IT’S ONLY BETWEEN YOU AND THE COMPANY THEN — IF SOMEONE ELSE USE ITSELF THEY COULD BE IN VIOLATION OF FRAUD FOR SURE. OKAY. WE ALSO — WE WANTED TO TALK ABOUT DRONES AND HOW WE CAN MONITOR THAT I GUESS. I WAS FASCINATED. THIS WAS A STORY WE RAN LAST WEEK IN CAR MICHAEL. THIS WOMAN SAID THIS DRONE THING KEEPS FLYING OVER MY YARD. WHEN I GRADUATED FROM BERKELEY THERE IS NO OPRAH, NO FACEBOOK, NO CELL PHONES. NOW IT’S ALL DOCUMENTED. YOU HAVE DRONES FLYING UP AND YOU HAVE A REASONABLE EXPECTATION OF PRIVACY IN YOUR BACKYARD AND HOUSE. IF A DRONE POPS UP TO YOUR BATHROOM WINDOW THAT’S INVASION OF YOUR PRIVACY. IF YOU ARE OUT GOING TO GET PIZZA AND IT’S FOLLOWING YOU PROBABLY NOT BECAUSE YOUR RIGHT TO PRIVACY DOESN’T EXTEND BEYOND YOUR FANTASTIC DOOR. WHAT ABOUT YOUR BACKYARD? I WOULD THINK YOU WOULD BE PROTECTED. YOU IT MAY BE A LAW ENFORCEMENT ISSUE BECAUSE THERE ARE RULES ABOUT WHERE THEY CAN FLY. THEY COULD BE IN VIOLATION OF THAT. THAT’S DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU ARE AT. YEAH. IT’S THINK ABOUT YOUR RIGHT TO PRIVACY IN YOUR BACKYARD AND HOUSE. YOUR HOME IS EUREKASL. WINCE YOU GO OUT IT’S DANGEROUS. IT’S LIKE THE WHOLE PUBLIC IS SHOOTING WITH THEM. EVERYBODY HAS THEIR OWN REPORTERS FOLLOWING THEM. IMMATERIAL WE LOVE IF BECAUSE WE ARE SO SELFISH. . WE HAVE HIS INFORMATION THERE FOR YOU ON THE SCREEN.
