Cablevision, a regional cable provider found primarily in New York, can go ahead with its network DVR, a U.S. court has ruled. Several entertainment studios had said that the DVR, which remotely stores content on Cablevision’s servers rather than a local hard drive, violates their copyright. No idea why they’d think this, but we all know the studios are allergic to new technology.
The DVR, which is officially called the Remote Storage Digital Video Recorder, is supposed to be faster and cheaper than traditional DVRs.
While the appeals court said it was OK with the DVR, all proceedings have been sent to the U.S. District Court in New York.
So, a step closer to see it released.
