A move to help TV viewers avoid restrictions on digital broadcast signals scheduled to take effect on July 1, 2005 has been launched by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). The campaign is targeted at something called the "Broadcast Flag," a digital rights management scheme that the EFF maintains will stop viewers from making digital copies of over-the-air television shows and sharing them with others. What's more, the Federal Communications Commission is requiring that once the scheme goes into effect, all personal video recorders will have to be "flag compliant."
DRM for HD-TV broadcast???
I'm in full support of DT Liberation project. One thing is quality another is capability. As of today I'm able to conect my TV to my PC and re-transmit standardt TV broadcast. Probably image quality isn't pretty good... by I can do it???.
We aren't stupid, behind the "flag" stuff (DRM) a tag price would be attached.
Bottom line, we are going to pay for regular HD-TV broadcast, bet on that. If so, I want no damn commercial!!!
