You thought you could escape commercials ?

Those fils de pub (as we say in France) can't stand anything that 
escapes them...

And also "People using TiVo and other digital video recorders expect to 
be able to fast-forward through commercials". I think they will soon use 
the same DVD commands to forbid you to skip some parts of the content 
for TiVo and similar systems (similar to the protection bit that forbids 
copying the content).
