What fraud?  Was the data used for something other than MythTV PVR's
like originally intended?  Was someone trying to re-sell the data?

This is the first I heard of "fraud" talking about listing data.  I
heard "abuse" before, and assumed that meant people were pulling data
hourly on a cron job or something, taxing the server to hard...   But
what was the fraud?  And how is the schedulesdirect.org project going
to stop this fraud issue?
