Makes you realize why there are so many designations and varying terms for the transfer of goods.

If I order my container full o' crap from China on FOB terms, when it falls into the sea (or gets "lost") I take the hit.

But should I choose to have them send DDP, I bear no responsibility until the container is unloaded at my receiving port.

there is no scenario AT ALL in which this should be possible. You shoot, makes backups the same day. Edit the show on your own computers, hopefully backing up to a remote location daily, or more realistically, weekly. (Sneakernet, I'd assume.) When you're done editing your show, you want to have backups all over. Why the fuck did the ISP have control of the only copy of their show?

Like punning, programming is a play on words.
