Fox, CBS and NBC filed lawsuits against Dish Network Thursday over a feature found in a new digital video recorder that lets subscribers automatically skip the advertisements on recorded shows from major networks. Dish countered by asking a judge to declare that the feature does not infringe on any copyrights as claimed by the networks. The so-called Auto Hop feature allows users to completely skip broadcast TV commercials on recorded programs that are broadcast on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox.

Why donít CBS, FOX, and NBC execs want consumers to enjoy commercial-free TV? Itís what we want! Iím a customer and employee of Dish, and I think Auto Hop is great because you can easily watch commercial-free TV. A well known consumer advocacy group, Public Knowledge, agrees that people should have the right to control how they watch TV. Theyíre taking a stand for consumers by creating a petition that tells CBS, FOX, and NBC media to keep their hands out of your living room and DVR. Sign their petition to keep control of how you watch TV http://bit.ly/KFdn1Q
