You already pay for the content. The copy once flag is DRM designed to make it more difficult to view that content you legally pay for, under the guise that pirates will share that material and thus they NEED to protect their content.
I like the way it is now. I can easily watch on my PC my W7MC shows on a media share. If they put the copy flag on, a 100% legitimate use of the material I am paying for will be removed.
Also, the silicondust ipad apps, etc will no longer work.
You will be forced to wait for Verizon (known world-wide for their high quality software and PC only versions) to conjure up an app to get access to it, of course using THEIR DVRs not my W7MC that I use today to avoid the $60/month in fees I don't pay to them.
So why bother having cable? I can simply download what I want and watch it where I want, like I do now 100% legally, except I could do it for free and do exactly what stupid DRM restrictions do-- turn law abiding citizens into criminals.
If you recall DRM already failed in music, and itunes is an example on how a legitimate site works and that DRM just limits choice and portability.
So this is only going back into the stone age.
After VZ wanting to jack my 3-play rates $30 (to $130), I am simply going to drop all 3 and go to TWC for $40/month for 15/2, and pocket the extra $90/month. Ok I may have to pay $6 for VOIP because my wife needs a landline.
Imagine what I can do with $84, hmm maybe I can put that toward my Verizon family share plan Oops, I went to VM an PPC, another $100/month in my pocket.
Sorry VZ, you lose $184/month from me.
I understand that. My point was they expect to get paid- and want in on it too. And my comment about already over priced content was that hollywood wants paid as well- just like the "news guy" wishes.
And this proves that the grass is NOT always better on the otherside as people make VZ out to be with FiOS. They're not better than an MSO.

You need an extender for your W7MC. You are allowed to stream that recorded content, just not copy it to a different device. Spend $100 on a refurbished XBox 360 from bestbuy.com and watch live and recorded tv from your W7MC. While not using a cable box...

can also likely get software that will strip off the copy once flag. its not wrong to do so unless you go beyond the LAN and offer it over the internet.

I unfortunately pay for a STB and use Elgato's EyeTV HD to record my content DRM free on my Mac. Its only drawback is that it only records one show at a time. Other than that it works great and it transcodes on the fly for my iOS devices.
