Aereo | Protect My Antenna

The broadcasters are asking the Court to deny consumers the ability to use the cloud to access a more modern-day television antenna and DVR in order to protect what they believe are their most lucrative business models.
The Copyright Act provides no justification to curtail those rights simply because the consumer is using modern, cloud-based equipment. If the broadcasters succeed, the consequences to American consumers and the cloud industry are chilling.

The issue of whether transmissions made by consumers using Aereo are public performances under the Copyright Act is currently before the United States Supreme Court, which will hear arguments on April 22, 2014. An important question in this case is why the broadcasters are so intent on preventing consumers from using a remotely located antenna and DVR.
