The creator of the NeTV2 explains a little more about its inspiration. “I’ve always wanted to build a digital video processing system. I freely tinkered with digital video throughout high school and college, but then the law changed. The passing of Section 1201 made it unlawful to process encrypted digital video feeds, even in the privacy of your own home. Now, with the help of the EFF, we’re asking the US government to restore the freedoms to innovate and express that America enjoyed when I was younger. I designed NeTV2 with the hope of finding like-minded developers who want to develop video processing applications but have felt restricted by the current laws limiting our freedoms to innovate and express, especially when it comes to encrypted videos.”
