Dealing with Commercial TV's Abuse

Channel 9 logo on 717 Bourke Street, Docklands, MelbourmeThis week's letter to The Age's Green Guide:

Last week I tried to record an old Clint Eastwood film off Channel 9's GEM. I programmed my PVR using GEM's own EPG (Electronic Program Guide) and added a ten minute safety margin. However, I was later disappointed to find the recording missed both the beginning and the end of the film.
My question is this: does my Channel 9 experience give me the legal right to download the film off the Internet?
