Aereo: Changing the Channels
On April 22 the U.S. Supreme Court takes up the case of Aereo. A start-up that could up-end the TV business as we know it. At issue is whether it is legal for Aereo to provide its customers with Internet access to broadcast network television. Big broadcasters argue the service is an "unauthorized exploitation of the copyrighted works of others." If Aereo wins, will the broadcasters take their programming off the air and move it to cable? If Aereo loses, where does that leave viewers? There are many legal questions with big business implications.
