Skipping Television Ads with DVR: Fair or Foul?

Skipping Television Ads with DVR: Fair or Foul?

Television networks including Fox, ABC, NBC, and CBS have sued DVR services for providing a method to skip commercials such as Dish Network’s AutoHop and PrimeTime Anytime. Last week, Fox Broadcasting appealed California federal judge Dolly Gee’s decision to deny a preliminary injunction of such services. Judge Gee also recently denied Dish’s motion to dismiss NBC’s claims based on improper venue.
