1. I believe that rule is in place for DVDs only since that involves the companies selling those episodes in stores. Case in point, Adult Swim had a marathon consisting of all of the Season 1 and 2 episodes that weren't allowed a DVD release. Bigger example is the Adam West Batman show airing on The Hub despite the legal issues preventing a DVD release.
