Dear Mr Big Shot Lawyer
In response to your take down demand I have shifted the application to a host in Australia.
It is established law that the use of the application and the dissemination of its output is legal in Australia.

reven:buzzy: Slightly off-topic, but I've just had a read of the Ts&Cs at Sky's website. They do specifically mention that you cannot use any automated extraction of programming information:
Programme Listing information: In relation to the programme listing information on this website, and without limiting the foregoing, you may not remove, copy or extract any of the programme listing information by any automated means or exhibit, permit or facilitate the viewing of any or all of programme listing information in a public viewing area or via the internet or any other means of communication. You may only view the programme listing information. If you wish to make commercial use of the programme listing information you must obtain a separate licence by contacting SKY at email@example.com.
but since xmltvnz doesnt use skytv.co.nz as a source, surely that has no relevance.
Quidam:At the very least, you should still be able to extract all "free to air" EPG data, I simply cannot understand how Sky has any legal leverage in this regard.
Deev8: Reading through this thread a number of people have been saying "Call Sky's bluff"*, not surprising I suppose as it's easy to tell someone else to take a risk. So far I haven't seen anyone step up and suggest that they personally take over running Reven's website so that they can "Call Sky's bluff" - I certainly wouldn't take on the risk.
* To be fair, far more people have said that while they belive Sky are wrong, they would avoid a battle with the company.

As Sky are the owners of Prime TV they certainly have some rights in respect of that free-to-air channel.
kiwidoc: Happy to donate again if u want to set up the company. I'm sure we could all chip in.
