aTV Flash hack shut down

Remember that little thumb-drive that beat the heck out of your Apple TV until it gave up its precious? Well, due to some fair use issues (read “People getting pissed that aTV was stealing their programs”) they’ve discontinued the product.

In our interpretation of the fair use doctrine, our software does not cross any lines, but since this is a grey area issue, we have taken a proactive approach and decided to seek clarifcation directly from the rights holder before we offer the product again.

The site says outstanding orders will be refunded but seriously, just do it yourself. It’s not hard.
