Another case many moons ago.. Stargate SG1, Star Trek The Next Generation and DS9 and later Voyager. In Denmark the TV bosses in their wisdom did not think this "children's" program would have enough viewers to justify them buying the rights, so Denmark never got these shows when they were at their prime or even after. And yes they categorized them as children s programs..and the 10 episodes of Next Gen they did show 3 years after the show ended... were shown at 5pm as a children's program... a hour before most fans and adults came home from work... /clap. Of course there was no one who watched it. Anyways...the pro-copywrite people say.. well buy the DVDs!.. sure if they were available in Denmark, which they were not.. only the US versions, which were imported at a high price.. and of course which could not legally be played in the Danish/European DVD players.. Only years after the shows went off the air did the DVDs arrive and the shows started poping up on TV.... What did fans do in the mean time? They pirated the shows of course..... it was that or wait a decade to get it on TV..
No the present copywrite laws are bull**** and should be scrapped and new ones with the Internet and online streaming in mind should be put in place. What these morons at the big media companies dont seem to understand, is people want access to content the way they want and when they want.. and not when the media companies tell us or allow us.
