Broadcast Flag Shot Down

Friday, May 6th 2005

The broadcast flag’s introduction has been stopped!

This is a great victory – essentially the flag would have allowed broadcasters to mark what could and could not be digitally recorded. Everything from your Tivo to the ability to download TV shows would have been affected.

  1. This is great news!!! I kid you not, just today I was thinking about software driver work arounds to try to fool the broadcast flag. Now that time can be spent on other projects. Score one for the little people!
