+Jeremy Visser is the author of the excellent Python-iView application allowing users who are not normally able to access iView content (due to either not being able to use Flash, such as on Android) or Flash being to slow to use on the device. Sadly the +ABC's legal department has just sent him a cease and desist notice, thus requiring he stop making Python-iView available.

As much as I love the ABC, it's really sad to see it come to this. It's understandable that there's a lot of pressure from content producers to limit access to content. The ripple-down effect is this effects not just things like the latest episode of Doctor Who, but prevents access to all the other great local content and news produced by the ABC.
