* Tivo launches to-go services

PC Games/Hardware/Microsoft
Tivo has launched a new to-go service: copy shows from your Tivo to laptop or PC and watch them there, rather than just on your Tivo device in the living room.

At least, that's the theory.

No longer confined to TiVo digital video recorders in the living room or bedroom, subscribers will be able to transfer their recorded shows to PCs or laptops and take them on the road ? as long as the shows are not specially tagged with copy restrictions. That's also the case for pay-per-view or on-demand movies, and some premium paid programming.
In other words, the moment this gets big, the tv companies and MPAA will start tagging every show with copy restrictions by default.

Yeah, I know that sounds paranoid. But these are the same folks who sue at the drop of a hat and are now going after bittorrent users.
