The Flag Comes Down!

From Wired: The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled Friday that the Federal Communications Commission did not have the authority to prohibit the manufacture of computer and video hardware that doesn't have copy protection technology known as the "broadcast flag."

This may only be a temporary reprieve. The court didn't say the flag was illegal, just that the FCC had exceeded their charter in imposing it. Look for the MPAA to lobby congress to get it reinstated one way or another.
