Je viens de tomber sur cette déclaration édifiante de Jamie Kellner, CEO de Tunrner broadcasting, société propriétaire de CNN et part du groupe AOL Time Warner qui explique pourquoi il est contre les magnétoscopes et autres enregistreurs personnels :

Because of the ad skips…. It’s theft. Your contract with the network when you get the show is you’re going to watch the spots. Otherwise you couldn’t get the show on an ad-supported basis. Any time you skip a commercial or watch the button you’re actually stealing the programming.

Quant à ceux qui profiteraient des publicités pour assouvir un besoin naturel :

I guess there’s a certain amount of tolerance for going to the bathroom. But if you formalize it and you create a device that skips certain second increments, you’ve got that only for one reason, unless you go to the bathroom for 30 seconds. They’ve done that just to make it easy for someone to skip a commercial.
