I noticed this while recording a show on Turner Classic Movies this morning. This idea that Tivo is going to completely disregard the Betamax ruling to bend over backwards for TV studios to enforce an arbitrary length to my legal right to fair use is disgusting. I am ordering the parts for my non-Tivo PVR today. They've lost an early adopter and a VERY vocal proponent with this crap.
