Zukunft des Fernsehens

It ignores the fact that because of hyperdistribution, the audience is already in control of distribution. The producer has lost control over where, when and by whom productions are viewed. The producer may fret and file lawsuits and lobby to change the laws regarding the copying and distribution of television programs, but these have little overall effect – though it will anger the audience. Consider that, despite the famed Betamax decision of 1984, it is still just as illegal to time-shift a broadcast television program in 2005 as it was in 1979. Yet no home viewer has ever been prosecuted for it. Why? Because you don’t sue your audience. (Just ask Metallica how well that worked out.)

A propos: Habe soeben 2x20 geschaut … Komisches Ende. Hoffen wir, dass die Show im Oktober wieder über den Äther geht. Natürlich auch dann mittels „Hyperdistribution“.
