Aereo and the Broadcasters

Sometimes the universe offers us opportunities to extend our information to all people and sometimes we, or the Supreme Court, decide to keep the status quo.

They did so yesterday when they ruled against the video startup Aereo that maintains the norm for television viewers.

I’m a broadcaster. I made my living from broadcasting for over fifty years, but I’m still in favor of new ways to pass information and entertainment onto the general public. Cell phones, pads, and computers are the new way. It works, so there must be a way for broadcasters to be compensated for their content.

Aereo had a good idea, but nothing is free. Work it out and maybe everybody can make a little money.
