They Killed Your TiVo

Following the theme of the last post, here's more proof that powers-that-be (even in America) strongly favor limits on technological freedoms: Gizmodo reports that HBO wants the FCC to bless its "CopyNever" practice, which would prevent DVRs from ever recording its shows. Rumors have also surfaced that Fox has deployed a system to prevent certain DVR users from fast-forwarding through commercials during 24 and American Idol. Don't the networks realize that this kind of idiocy only pushes us all over to BitTorrent?
