Pick Programs To Bootleg

Where's "Pick Program To Sell On eBay"?

It was announced today that TiVo Inc., maker of popular digital television recording devices, received approval for technology that would permit users to send copies of digital broadcast shows over the Internet to a limited number of friends.

(keep in mind....'limited number of friends')

The FCC voted to certify digital protections on TiVoToGo - which is not yet available - but would enable a user to record and send a digital broadcast television show to up to nine others who have been registered on that person's service and has been given a key to see it.

(keep in mind....'nine others who have been registered and given a key')

The approval came despite concerns by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and the National Football League about the risks of unfettered distribution of copyrighted shows and airing regional games outside of their market.

(the NFL?!!)

TiVo'd Dido

TiVo plans to launch a version of TiVoToGo this fall that would allow users to transfer recorded shows to a home computer but has not said when it would launch its version that would allow shows to be shared outside the home.

Personally,I can't wait for TiVoToGo! I will start downloading and copying TV shows like a maniac! Screw the 'limited number of friends' and those 'registered and given a key'!!! I'm gonna send it to whoever I want, and I'm gonna make copies of everything and start selling on eBay like a madman!!!

(keep in mind....I am kidding!!!)
