tivo and the fcc

Well stated, disturbing quote from TiVo vs. the Broadcast Flag Wavers:

“The MPAA and the NFL phrase their objections as reasonable attempts to err on the side of caution. ‘We’re asking them to just wait awhile, let’s think it out more thoroughly,’ Attaway said.

“But if a programmer or an engineer with a bright idea has to go to Washington, hat in hand and lawyers in tow, to request permission to sell a better product — and is then told ‘just wait awhile’ — we are on our way to suffocating innovation in this country.”
