Fellow Copyright Fans - The U.S. Supreme Court currently is considering its most significant copyright case since Grokster, perhaps since Campbell (2 Live Crew) or Sony (Betamax).  Existing business and legal models for television are under assault. Consumers want to be able to see their content when, where and how they want (instead of being forced to use closed conventional cable or satellite content delivery systems).  A disrupting technology -- Aereo's service that makes "over-the-air" television available via mobile and other internet-connected devices -- is the subject of the arguments the U.S. Supreme Court heard on April 22 in the American Broadcasting Companies, Inc. v. Aereo, Inc. copyright litigation.  The Court’s decision will have significant effects not just on television, but also cloud computing and internet streaming.
