Senate’s New Bill May Criminalize The Fast Forward Button

After reading PVRblog’s story on TiVO’s plan to have ads during fast-forwading. I come across this short blurb about a new copyright bill that has a bit about skipping commercials in with a ton of other new anti-P2P laws:

However, under the proposed language, viewers would not be allowed to use software or devices to skip commericals or promotional announcements “that would otherwise be performed or displayed before, during or after the performance of the motion picture,” like the previews on a DVD

Just goes to enforce my idea that a custom built PVR is the way to go in the future.
