The file is now visible again, somehow this isn't the latest version of the program, the line numbering is different than in my current master copy. In any event the lines are all links to the news feeds for Global News streams that they publicly distribute in the open at,https://globalnews.ca/live/national
And you can see these links in your web-browser by going: right click on the page -> inspect -> network , and watching the traffic.
Publicly visible URLs, from their public open access broadcast.
The website and streams are not Geo-Location blocked, are public access, don't use a token or a cookie for authentication, are not behind a username/password log on or a paywall, don't have any DRM and are not encrypted. They publish the link themselves in the browser.
All of these links are visible and freely accessible in any modern web browser (Firefox, Chrome, Edge, etc)
by right clicking the web page -> Inspect -> Network , when watching the publicly broadcast streams available at,https://globalnews.ca/live/national/
Their complaint is that by playing these links in mpv or vlc, it circumvents their banner add above the stream...are they going to sue add blockers like uMatrix and uBlock-origin ? Also they have adds playing in between the news segments in the stream so you see their adds anyways if you watch the stream.
I removed the file instead, I'll re-upload it to github in the endstream repo with the channels and URL links removed. I'll do that on the weekend.
Posting 14 URLs in a text file is fair use. They publish these links themselves in their public broadcast.
Also they violated my EULA. They violated clause 9) and 10), by claiming copyright on my work, and may attempt to violate clause 15) by suing me in court for damages.
I removed the files and the text of the specific links that they requested removed. I expect that other vendors will attempt this in the future as well, so I'm going to isolate the streaming products in this repository, and keep them away from other more useful products, so that they don't get all taken down together. We'll see what happens.
