I'm proud to see my friend Raffi getting a bunch of exposure for his attempt to send the Super Bowl to his friends via broadband. His writeup for the FCC gives the lie to Valenti's claim that HDTV will result in unfettered copyright violation. Best case, Raffi found it would take five days to send a copy of the Super Bowl to someone from his house. It's a stunningly straighforward demonstration of how the copyright hoarders either don't have a clue or are willfully misleading policy makers.
