You should read this entire article, but this section from Steal This Show caught my eye:
The build-your-own-TV advocates say they’re not looking to steal content; they’re just looking for a reasonable amount of flexibility to watch the same recorded program in different rooms, or on the train to work; to lend friends a TV recording the way they used to lend videotapes; to bring the same set of recordings from their city home to their vacation house.
Playing the same show on different screens around the house seems reasonable, said Mr. Cotton of NBC Universal. But he added that expanding the circle much beyond that, the way future versions of the recently released TiVoToGo offering might allow one to send recorded programs over the Internet to nine other devices, including P.C.’s and laptops, was dangerously excessive. “Once you allow that much, is the technology really secure?” Mr. Cotton asked.
Uh, let’s see. NBC. Isn’t that broadcast? Can’t anyone with an antennae in range of a tower pick up the broadcast? How the hell is that considered secure? What is Mr. Cotton talking about?!
