I suggest, as do some others [Oh Lord, that sounds like the Fox Nutwork], that “they” came to Washington to exercize BIG Government control over people’s private lives. It’s just that, as FCC Commissioners, this is the arena in which they play.

But, BIG Government control over people’s private lives is the name of their game.

I get conflicting reports of when that implementation is to come, but when it is your card will be dead. I wish you luck.

I get every channel of Dish Network through a PC tuner card I bought from dsscanada.ca, including PPV events.

Mainstream cable and satellite are what most people purchase, and the MPAA intimidated these industries into accepting mandatory encryption standards designed specifically to lock out PC tv tuner cards and pre-mandate vcr’s.

Because this was approved in a separate ruling in which the FCC simply accepted anticonsumer manipulation of plug and play standards by the MPAA, there appears to be nothing, save for FCC’s willing reversal of the order, to prevent complete breach of our home recording rights, as well as unfair lockout of the personal computer as a possible home “media center”.

Considering I have been living with the promise of a pc based media center, I am beyond disappointed. I have been robbed, i’m sure others agree with me, especially people who own pre-mandate DVD recorders which cant decrypt the signal.

It would be easy for them to recend the “flag mandate” on grounds that the case is too firm against them.

Weather or not the case is actually firm enough for a defeat in court is irrelevant, that is if theyre looking for a graceful way out.

There could be pictures of hand shaking with the plaintiff parties in the current case of ALA et. al. v FCC, a nice warm fuzzy headline, and thats it.. public image problem solved.

I dont see that, and i also dont see the case being given the urgency it should have, with so little time remaining until the “compliance” deadline.

I think the FCC is doing damage control to help its case so it can continue to serve the MPAA’s beck and call.
