The Broadcast Flag is Back

“Twenty members of Congress are calling for the reinstatement of the ‘broadcast flag,’ a controversial form of copy prevention technology

for digital TV broadcasts.

“In a letter Thursday, the politicians called for rapid approval of a federal law adopting the broadcast flag, which would outlaw over-the-air digital TV receivers and computer tuner cards that don’t follow strict anticopying standards.”
