The article focuses on the controversy related to the Broadcast Flag rules that were adopted by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in order to control the redistribution of broadcast programming over the Internet. The FCC also established a cumbersome program for approving protection technologies, which was a separate area of controversy. The District of Columbia Federal Court of Appeals said that the FCC had overstepped its jurisdiction.
