The article focuses the issue on the legality of Cablevision Systems Corp.'s plan in network video recording system on ice. It could be noted that the judge presiding over the copyright-infringement case against Bethpage did not issue a ruling at its summary judgment. Cablevision's claim that the service, remote storage-digital video recorder (RS-DVR), is like a conventional recorder was challenged by the judge. It argued that RS-DVR is not different to the conventional set-top DVRs.
