"[T]he Broadcast Flag isn't really a deterrent against piracy so much as a deterrent against the big consumer electronics companies losing market share to little guys with big ideas. As long as it's illegal for people like [MythTV lead developer Isaac] Richards to tinker around with HD components, nobody will ever invent something better than TiVo or Media Player."
