I Spy!

The government has ordered SonicBlue, manufacturer of some high-end DVRs, to spy on its users and turn all of that information over to the TV and movie studios named as plantiffs.

Amazing. We choose to pay for these devices, including a monthly charge, so we can avoid advertisements and watch programs when we want. The government has now essentially said that we must give up anonymity if we want to do so. Will they ever get it?
