EFF/Copyright professors' comment on FCC's proposed set-top box rule
Content companies have opposed the FCC's proposed set-top box rule on the grounds that it would allow copyright infringement because people who'd paid for cable would be watching it without additional payments from the set-top box providers. As you can tell, I think this is incorrect. I and several other professors have signed on to the EFF's letter responding to these concerns. You can read the letter here.
