Re: It will be an easy, but expensive win for Aereo
said by MyDogHsFleas:Funny you admit I am right, but then try to say what Aereo is doing is different than what I am talking about.
Don't argue with this Oh_No guy, no matter how much fact and reality you bring to the table, and hold up in front of him, he will keep repeating his contentions over and over. I went through this on the last Aereo thread. He is like the song from the Music Man about Iowans. "And we're so by God stubborn / We could stand touchin' noses / For a week at a time / And never see eye-to-eye"
But... despite my warning to you.... here goes.
Its like you are just trying to find ways to argue.
said by MyDogHsFleas:If all of those are legal then Aereo is legal except case 2 you have that wrong. Aereo leases individual antennas/no broadcasting.
Your first three cases are all legal to do without obtaining a separate license in that they have not been ruled illegal. Case 1 is basic reception of a broadcast signal by a TV. Case 2 is CATV, where there's one big antenna and everyone connects to it. Case 3 is SlingBox, where an end user place-shifts the feed over the Internet.
Leasing one antenna to multiple people 'could' be viewed/argued as rebroadcasting but again there is no law for this yet.
