Public Sides with Aereo

See on Scoop.itKH6JRM’s Amateur Radio Blog

According to a study from research firm Peerless Insights, 46% of online respondents want Aereo to win its court battle with broadcasters, while only 15% said they want the Supreme Court to rule in broadcasters’ favor. The rest had no answer.

Why This Matters: Gaining public support seems to come fairly easy for Aereo, which posted a YouTube video on Monday laying out its claim of how it legitimately uses cloud-based broadcast antennas to render its service. But the company’s fate rests in the hands of the Supreme Court, which is expected to render a verdict by the end of this month.

Russ Roberts‘s insight:
