Is TiVo illegal in Japan?

From the rethink(ip) deja vu files...

Via PVR blog: Link to a Cnet article: Skipping TV ads illegal in Japan?

Back to my post of yesterday..."What if TiVo is responding to Grokster? Perhaps they are working on distancing themselves from encouraging users to skip commercials. Isn't skipping a commercial the creation of a derivative work? Don't want to be inducing that, now do we????"

Like I said...doing the opposite doesn't make sense. Perhaps TiVo is performing a little "preventative maintenance."
