The only issue I can really see here comes that this is required that 
people have to upload their verified commercials.  I can forsee that 
there are many people who would rather be lazy and download this data 
than upload their own.  There would have to be some sort of system to 
enforce that everyone puts in their own share of data.  Perhaps if you 
use this feature, you are required to hand verify your own results for 
some pre defined percentage of the shows, and report those. 

This also brings up the point that of some shows won't have very much 
data - say for example a show local only to your area.  This predefined 
percentage should take a look at what shows have the most data being 
reported, and then take a look at what shows you record.  If your shows 
being recorded don't have very much data, you would be required to 
submit data for your shows.

What do people think of this?
