The TiVo sets the copy prohibited flag on pushes, by default. We don't know how to turn it off, if it's even possible to do so. (Back in the day, there supposedly was a TiVoCast -- just one -- that successfully petitioned to get the flag turned off, for them. But I never saw this.) So, yeah, the bit about the copyright holder asking for it is BS; it's TiVo that does it, indiscriminately.
As to why, that's also a good question.
