Because this ad aired AFTER the 1981 ruling from the 9th Circuit Court, but BEFORE the 1984 Supreme Court ruling in the Betamax case, which found that home taping for timeshifting is permitted! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sony_Corp._of_America_v._Universal_City_Studios,_Inc.
perhaps Lucia's assessment is the answer to this question from an old "Murder, She Wrote" that I also find hilarious
In case you are now freshly ready to take a look at novels published in 2020: "Situation Normal" by Leonard Richardson is a gallows-humor multispecies space opera romp on the edge of war.

2 exciting bits of news re: massively improving how we package, distribute, & install Python software!
1: a new grant to further improve Python packaging security

My free 3-chapter sampler ebook: https://changeset.nyc/resources/getting-unstuck-sampler-offer.html
https://www.harihareswara.net/sumana/2021/01/27/0 A list of competitors for my upcoming book (on getting open source projects unstuck), and some assumptions built into general software management advice that stop it from addressing many open source maintainers' needs.

I've just published a 38-page sampler from my upcoming book of advice on rejuvenating #opensource projects: "Getting Unstuck".
You can get this 38-page ebook for free when you subscribe to my email newsletter (1-10 updates per year). https://buttondown.email/Changeset
