Supreme Court argues over Aereo case

  • There were oral arguments inside the Supreme Court in regards to ABC v. Aereo, which is an important case for cloud computing as well as for broadcast television. 

    Aereo allows users to record TV online and watch it whenever they wish to. However, the major broadcast networks are suing it. 

    "If you're comfortable with the Supreme Court resolving disputes over technology, the transcript of Tuesday's oral arguments...should change your mind," Jon Healey of the LA Times said. Moreover, the justices weren't sure of Aereo's business model. "It's not logical to me that you can make these millions of copies and essentially sell them to the public," one of them said.
