FCC Chair Kevin Martin says he won't back the Motion Picture Association of America's request for a waiver on the agency's ban on selectively blocking video outputs.

Excellent news,but I doubt it will stay this way. I was especially amused at the MPAA's comments about how this would help deliver better content to the elderly, disabled, and parents with young children who might not be able to make ti to the theater. They can shout altruistic sentiment like this from the highest rooftops, but it still won't drown out the sound of them counting their money!
