TiVo + iPod = Networks + Lawsuits = Stupidity

Just the mention that TiVo was planning to make it easier for owners to transfer video from their boxes to iPods was apparently enough to freak out some TV networks (see the link to a iLounge article, from title). Right now, people can transfer programs to their PCs and watch them there or burn them to DVD. Or, someone with a VCR can tape a TV show. What exactly are the networks trying to prevent? As one of the commenters to the iLounge article says:

Look, I WANT to watch yoru [sic] shows. STOP TRYING TO STOP ME.
