On the Aereo Case

The Supreme Court of the United States will soon decide the fate of broadcast-streaming service Aereo. Pulling a broadcast from the air with your own equipment, and then streaming it over the Internet, again with your own equipment, to customers receiving it with their own equipment, is an example of everyone using their own property in their own way. For anyone to say otherwise is an act of theft. If the broadcasters don’t want their content pulled and streamed, they can stop broadcasting on public airwaves and come up with a business model that doesn’t steal from others. And that’s today’s two cents.
