So the manufacturers were wrong when they said the presence of the facility would be transparent to consumers because of the court decision? It sounds to me like the court decision had virtually no practical effect, but nobody was saying that at the time.
Considering that copyright owners really don't care about people with video capture cards or who modify their equipment or update firmware (there aren't enough of us to matter), it sounds like the regulation actually took effect, whether the FCC had the right to make it or not.
