To be technical, it sounds like one cant even record off air on VCR/DVR-Not that i'd want to..

Transmit would mean whoever is uplinking the feed needs a call from Harpo's lawyers since it doesn't include "without permission"

honestly who cares? It says that on alot of programs ;)

It says the same thing at the beginning of a Fighting Sioux game on the FSSN. It says only private homes can view this yet there is a sportsbar complex here in Minneapolis called Joe Senser's (named after the Vikings player) that shows the games. Heck more than once the pxp guy has said "we welcome all our Sioux fans in the Twin Cities watching at Joe Sensers"

Right, who cares?

Saying something is illegal doesn't MAKE it illegal.
It's just legal bluffing. Otherwise known as B/S.

Just ignore.

edit:
Oh, and I don't see anything at all that's anti-FTA in the actual quote, so what's the big deal?

I agree.

At the beginning of the My Network schedule (6:58 & 9:58 CST) on G16 they have the same "warning" message :)

I thought it was just a copy rite notice, they just don't want any one downloading it and then rebroadcasting it to make money...without them getting their cut!
And I don't really blame them for that, I have been fighting copy rite infringement for years, cuts into a lot of my profit.

Who is Oprah?

Oprah is crack for Housewives!

I wouldn't worry about the warning unless the lawyers come a-calling. As long as you record it to keep the wife/gf happy and not go spreading it on the torrent sites, you should be fine.

yeah, I know. Almost a waste of a click to read this thread! ;)

If Oprah did say something about FTA, her sheeple would flock to the FTA dealers (pun intended!) to buy 36" inch dishes and FTA receivers because anything Oprah mentions is gold because of her sheeple. Sadoun should ship her a system to try to get her to plug FTA on her show and he probably would find himself with a huge backorder log.
