There is a lot going on right now in terms of copyright law. They're trying to make it possible to force you to delete things from your PVR.
What the music industry went through 10 years ago, the entire entertainment industry is going through right now.
The thing is, the artists and creative people do need to be able to make a living.
I'm not sure what the solution is. All I know is that there are more and more commercials on TV, the volume is too loud, and there is generally a lack of quality family programming.
What's interesting is that TV is pretty much a dead medium in its current form. It does look very nice over the air with an antenna, though.
