Calming down...

Japanese broadcast regulators are now saying that ad-skipping devices like Tivo are illegal. Up next: The cops are coming to smash the fast-forward button on your remote control.

Or... maybe not. All the non-blog stories I can find are from the National Association of Commercial Broadcasters, which is a commercial advocacy group, not a bunch of regulators. This isn't anything that Jack Valenti in the US hasn't said before.
