    I remember when VCR’s were first introduced. The advertisers took the VCR folks to court because they didn’t want the viewers to watch their Thursday evening dinner commercials on Saturday morning at breakfast. A question was asked: What if the viewers just skip through the commercials on fast forward? The advertisers never considered that the viewers would do that. Remember, TV shows are just filler between commercials. The court decided that they were not going to stop the sale of VCR’s and could find no way to police whether or not viewers watched the commercials.

    I don’t know if this lawsuit against Dish will succeed or not but if this device from Dish really can skip the recording of commercials, then we won’t have commercials on TV; you will pay an amount that makes up the difference in loss of advertising revenue as part of your bill. So it really doesn’t matter.
