Last week I noted: “Rumors abound that the FCC will back off its set-top box crusade to something resembling the industry suggestions. Good move. Someone actually paid attention to the copyright implications.” Well, not quite. Just a big “sort of.” Yes, the Federal Confusion Commission did more or less endorse the Cable/Video/Internet infrastructure and programming companies’ app-based plan to crack open the box in an already commercially proven model (sort a first safe-cracker attempt to not quite unlock) … but with interesting caveats. And a vote has been set for the Open Meeting on September 29. Lobbyists, rev up your engines!
