I am thinking that there needs to be a way for content providers to 
sue or charge broadcasters if they knowingly screw it up in delivery. 
What we need is a quality control system so that specialized recievers 
located in various places around the world can evaluate the quality of 
the received program and report results back to the content producers 
so that the broadcasters can pay up.  If a broadcaster wants to reduce 
the quality in order to make room for more programs, then they should 
be willing to pay a fee to the original content provider.

The current system is similar to selling a licensed copy of a book 
with only the first and last chapters included and adding the term 
"abridged" in small print on the cover.  This is not fair to either 
the author or the reader.
