Most of this applies to the peer to peer stuff as far as I read from clicking on the link to the amendment in the article. I couldn't find anything on not being allowed to skip previews/commericals within it. But I confess after a while my eyes started bleeding from the legalese. Anyone else read it and find that section? (Not saying it isn't there, but I could not find it)
Here ya be,
The bill would also permit people to use technology to skip objectionable content -- like a gory or sexually explicit scene -- in films, a right that consumers already have. However, under the proposed language, viewers would not be allowed to use software or devices to skip commericals or promotional announcements "that would otherwise be performed or displayed before, during or after the performance of the motion picture," like the previews on a DVD. The proposed law also includes language from the Pirate Act (S2237), which would permit the Justice Department to file civil lawsuits against alleged copyright infringers.
