    Isn't downloading the copywrited video from the offical site, illegal in the first place?

    Anyway, Indy3, your method does work. The name of the file with the commentary is:

    comm_c4r77000n_dl.mov

    And it's not illegal if you don't get caught! Ha!

    I'm unclear as to the legality of this.

    If it's available for download without requiring a password, I *think* it's okay -- so long as YOU don't distribute it yourself.

    I think that was the position taken with the Clone Wars Short Stories posted on a Hasbro-owned website earlier this year.

    However, I'm not 100% clear on that so I'll need clarification...

    Well, we're not hearing any harsh words about the ruthless pirates that taped it off of TV (the FBI's coming for you guys!).

    And thanks chewcaca, you made my day a little brighter! :D

    Hey Anakin, on a scale of 5 to 500, 5 being the WORST, how would you rate starwars.com's ability to have the first chapter of the clone wars up and running on Fri, Nov 7th?

    Thanks Anakin. Let's keep our fingers crossed for Monday. All 5 of them.

    How big is the CartoonNetwork.com version?

    Also, since that file is from HS, it would be breaking the rules yeah?

    [face_laugh] LOL! Yes, if you havn't seen the similar thread on the OS boards you should check it out. It's like 30 pages of ticked off HS paying members ripping the staff up and down, and there's nothing anyone can say. I really hope they've learned their lesson.

    > Also, since that file is from HS, it would be breaking the rules yeah?

    The file is from aol.com

    On an unprotected server.

    It seems hyperspace links to it. But as it's not actually housed on hyperspace (like the Ep2 droid control ship deleted scene) and anyone can view the file, I'd say it's fair game.

    And also bear in mind that the Micro Series isn't an "exclusive" like the HS webcam, deleted scene, chats etc - it's freely available on network TV worldwide, an on cartoonnetwork.com and starwars.com in a smaller screensize.

    So it's HS that's breaking the rules then. They say it's an exclusive (the size and commentry anyway), but it's avaliable on AOL?

    ********!!!!

    Well, when I say "freely available" I don't mean there's a big link on aol.com's website for all aol subscribers and visitors to see and follow.

    The files are hosted on a non-private aol.com server, not on starwars.com/hyperspace, or so it seems...

    So yes, people like me who only signed up on Hyperspace for this cartoon have reason to be miffed at how poorly this thing has been set up. But personally, I don't mind. The more people who see the cartoon the better. :D

    We may get the hard word from LFL about this and have to go and edit out certain info from this thread - but we're hoping that as this cartoon isn't really a HS exclusive, and the episodes are airing globally, that LFL won't care if URLs get passed around.

    So, what's your point of view, dp4m... Is it allowed to post links on the board ?

    We're still waiting to her from site-owner Josh on this one.

    Proceed with caution, but don't be surprised if sometime soon, some of the links disappear from this thread, or are swapped out with the smaller-screensize freely available version from starwars.com here.

    I can't see the Cartoon Network commentary bcause I live in Canada and it is only for American residents.

    That stinks. :( :(

    Has anyone located the actual URLs for the cartoonnetwork.com files?

    [face_mischief]

    And there are links in this thread for the other commentary tracked version.
