If you're annoyed by the intrusive pop ups, animations and non-program material that broadcasters insert into their programming, you might consider filing a complaint with the FCC.

Form 475B - Obscene, Profane, and/or Indecent Broadcast Complaints.

Don't you consider vandalizing a piece of artwork to be obscene?
If you went into a museum and found the paintings and sculptures vandalized with advertisements and announcements, you'd object. If you went to a public concert that was repeatedly marred by visual and audio interruptions, you'd be indignant.

Let's do something about it. Let the FCC know that you feel violated by the obscenity of intrusive pop ups, animations, sound effects, and any other non-programming vandalism of broadcasted works of art.

I suspect that any network receiving unwanted attention from the kilocycle kops, would change their practices before a new regulation locked them down.

Remember, they're using YOUR airwaves for THEIR private profit. And if they ANNOY you with their obscene vandalism of artwork, you should make your voice heard.

And while you're at it, let the networks know that you've filed a complaint with the FCC.

Let's make 2010 the year they stop Video Vandalism.
