Hi,

we put money 50/50 together with my cousin over in EUrope and he recorded some off air TV shows/films and wants to ship them here in US for my kids. Now in the last moment, he is asking me whether it is legal and what to declare on the package. Any advice ?
Thanks.

Call it timeshifting from europe to us :wink:
But i dont think it is legal as you are still breaking copyright…

Depends if it is legal in the country from which it is being shipped.

Could they be considered “Home Movies”?

If they are in the EU it could be a problem.

They would probably get into less trouble if they were shipping drugs.LOL
Sorry!

Is there an international affairs attorney @ CDFreaks that can offer some guidance?
