Unhappy Copy protect trying to make a comeback

Or otherwise called, Selectable Output Control which was prohibited by the FCC sometime ago.
The Motion Picture Studios are trying to re-allow it to suposedly allow first runs to be shown prior to media release dates (i.e. HBO).
While I don't have a problem with that, can certainly see the copy protect bit being "accidentally" left set for long after its been released.

This would primarily affect future DVR,TIVO units.

FCC may make DVR design harder, and limit functionality

Comments to the FCC can be sent up til 7/7.

Default Re: Copy protect trying to make a comeback

Thanks for the heads up. I'll repost this information on a couple of other sites to try to get the word out.
