I write to urge you to reject the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking #02-230, which
would limit the functionality of digital television sets. As currently
constructed, this ·broadcast flag· proposal would hamper innovation in digital
televisions and other electronic equipment capable of receiving digital
broadcasts.
I don\'t understand why the industry experts who set up this deal cannot get it
through their heads that if we can\'t record their programs... WE WON\'T WATCH
THEM. Most normal people cannot watch all programs at the times that the
industry decides to put them on... Thus, we record and watch later.
Drop this rule NOW.
