This Just In From The FCC

The FCC ruled today that TiVo will be permitted to go ahead with its plans to allow users to send recorded shows over the Internet. Declan McCullagh has more: "The FCC said at its meeting Wednesday that TiVo's security system will be 'appropriate for use' when receiving digital TV signals broadcast over the airwaves." (Note Politech is now a blog.) So does TiVo: "The FCC determined that digital broadcast television content should be protected, but that protection should still enable it to be accessed over the Internet so long as that access does not lead to mass indiscriminate redistribution of programs over the Internet." Guess it never hurts to have fans in high places!
