Each person is making a copy on their local computer, in cache at bare minimal. Why ya being obtuse? I know that you know how computers work. Hell, you probably know more about 'em than I do. Without a copy, they're not viewing the page. This is definitely a copy and almost certainly in violation of copyright laws in the US and, I'm pretty sure, Germany. Hell, I'm so certain that I'll bet on it. :D The company will either be found guilty (of property or copyright laws) or will settle out of court which may include shutting down, filing for bankruptcy, and dumping any assets they can before they make it to court.
Ya just can't do this. It's against the law. Sheesh. I know you know better. :P It's too early in the morning to go making me think. LOL I woke up to AmiMojo responding, having to dig out their old reply, and then reading their response saying they didn't say what they said they said (I'd quoted it, without editing it, in full), and claiming that I had reading comprehension issues. :/ I shoulda stayed in bed longer but the hotel's noisy.
I'm leaving on Friday so, I guess, you can know my current address.
That's why it's so noisy around here. They've got a giant-ass gingerbread house in the lobby. People keep coming to check out the display. I guess they did this as a tradition but, recently, had stopped it and have just started doing it again. Thus there are reporters, tourists, locals, and general mayhem and noise. I don't know if it was the cause of the noise that woke me up but I'm resentful.
Anyhow, of course there's a copy - even if it's just a temporary copy in cache. There's a damned copy and you know it - hell, you probably know more about it than I do, how it was specifically written to memory, and how it is isolated from memory, if there was any cache stored on disk, etc... And no, no I'm not gonna play "what if they modified their phone so that it was live and there was no cache-state!" No! Have you no shame?!? Sheesh... Sheesh, indeed.
