Broadcast flag for digital TV in question


As with any compromise position, the FCC's decision to go forward with some form of "broadcast flag" to limit the reproduction of TV signals that have copyright protection is taking heat from all sides.

According to an article on CNet, congress is upset that the FCC might make rules that step on their toes in the copyright arena, privacy and fair use advocates are afraid that the fair use of signals will be non-existant, and the movie industry is concerned that they won't be able to expand protections as far as they like.
