One for the good guys

Networks sued over claim that skipping commercials is theft!

Let's hear it for the EFF!!

In an interview with [INSIDE] Magazine, Turner Broadcasting CEO Jamie Kellner voiced this opinion on the issue: "[T]he ad skips . . .. It's theft. Your contract with the network when you get the show is you're going to watch the spots. Otherwise you couldn't get the show on an ad-supported basis. Any time you skip a commercial or watch the button you're actually stealing the programming."

I got news for ya, bub...I don't *have* a contract with any networks.
