But by that logic, it would be NFL vs. Aereo or DirecTV vs. Aereo, not broadcasters vs. Aereo. I don't think that's the use case that they are concerned about, even if some people have family "back home" register an Aereo account for them to watch football... On what grounds? VCRs were deemed legal a long, long time ago... That makes no sense. The entire point of TiVo is that it's a DVR, not an internet streaming box. Exactly. It makes no sense that I could pay the station through Comcast, or put an antenna up and get it for free... The government shouldn't be protecting old business models. If they don't work, let them not work on their own.
