The TV networks are still trying to figure out whether or not they actually like personal video recorders like Tivo (even though some of them invested in Tivo). One thing they seem sure of, though, is that the new ReplayTV from Sonicblue goes too far. So, the lawsuits begin. The networks are claiming that it's too easy to skip commercials on the Replay, and more importantly this concept of being able to "share" shows scares the Napster right out of the networks. Of course, I think the sharing aspect could allow them to get a lot more visitors, but we've already seen that the entertainment industry doesn't seem to think things through very carefully.
