It's Not TV... You Can Record TV

From the "How To Make Subscribers Into Former Subscribers" Department comes this news, via Gizmodo:

HBO has filed with the FCC to label its shows with a "Copy Never" broadcast flag. In other words, if you have a VCR or a TiVo, HBO is telling you to suck on it.

You have to wonder sometimes if some parts of the entertainment industry are being run by Bialystock & Bloom. Are they trying to drive the audience away?

And it's Bialystock and Bloom.

Bialystock Bloom would just be the name of Leo Bloom's mutant lovechild. Eww.

How did that happen?! I've restored my amputated ampersand. Thanks for the pickup.
