AT&T Swallows Foot & Retracts Terms Of Service Change

babyeatingfoot Late last week all the blogs were in an uproar about AT&T changing their terms of service to ban streaming audio and video over their cellular network. The new wording said:

Downloading movies using P2P file-sharing services, customer-initiated redirection of television or other video or audio signals via any technology from a fixed location to a mobile device, Web broadcasting, and/or for the operation of servers, telemetry devices and/or Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition devices is prohibited.

Looks like AT&T has swallowed their own foot on this one and said that it was all a big error. According to Gizmodo AT&T came back and said:

The language added on March 30 to AT&T’s wireless data service Terms and Conditions was done in error. It was brought to our attention and we have since removed it. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

I have never heard of a terms of use being modified on accident… I guess blogs raising awareness about this kind of change is useful!
