    My mum is going to Bingo on Saturday night and I offered to record it
    on my PVR for her.

    My mum will arrive home halfway through the program and I suggested
    that we could sit down using the timeshift function and cut out the
    adverts.

    My concern is two fold.

    1. Am I breaking copyright law, if my mum invites some friends over to
    watch it with us.
    2. Is it more morally reprehensible to skip the adverts (as after all
    the advertisers have paid good money to expose my mum to their
    products) or to actually record the adverts in the first place.

    Quite the quandry as you can see.

    I should add that both my mother and her friends all suffer from
    Alzheimer's. If they forget what they have seen 10 minutes after they
    have watched it - has any copyright been breached?


    I'm really hoping you have someone knowledgable within your group that
    would be able to advise me on such matters.

    That was funny - especially the bit about Alzheimer's. If they arrive 30
    mins into the program and only have a 10 minute memory span, surely they
    will end up in a recursive loop?

    ;o)
