Broadcast Flag Deadline Moved up to February 18
The deadline for filing reply comments to the US Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) on Hollywood's Broadcast Flag scheme has been bumped up to
February 18 from December 6 last year.
This was largely due to requests from library associations.
Anyone who's been following Hollywood's selfless battle to protect consumer
rights by overseeing what they hear, see and do at home (or anywhere else,
come to that) on equipment carefully monitored by entertainment industry
technologies will deplore this extension.
