Re: L&L epub has the Videonics Catalog on line

If I may ask: is the file limited to being used on just one computer? Also, can the file be converted by a file converter program so I can port it out in an optimal form to my other portable devices? The MP4 format is not encumbered with DRM, so you can play it on just about any device. And any tra...

No pirating here. Sherlock is being shown here in the US on our Public Broadcasting Stations (PBS). They license many of your best shows for broadcast in the US. If previous patterns hold, season 3 will be available for purchase on iTunes within the next few months :-)
