Broadcast Flag: EFF Build Around

While the broadcast flag was challenged in court today, the Electronic Frontier Foundation came up with a technological challengence: the HD PVR Cookbook, a step-by-step guide that teaches people how to build a high-definition digital television (HDTV) recorder unaffected by the technological constraints of the Broadcast Flag. This does not look like something an average user could pull off, but good to see this effort. And a nice example of how both codes, law & tech, may (de-)regulate.
