SUPREME COURT - Commercial Broadcasters vs Aereo Streaming

MY TAKE:  IF Aereo is just like putting a TV antenna on your roof, then what's the problem?  One I could see is Aereo (and other such services) not being regulated to make sure they do ABSOLUTELY no editing to the content from commercial TV.  No deleting commercials or station ID, just like Cable TV.

SUMMARY:  The Supreme Court heard a request by television broadcasters to shut down Aereo, a TV streaming tech startup that has potential to alter the business model of traditional broadcasting.  For more on the case, Jeffrey Brown talks to former Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal and Gary Shapiro, CEO of Consumer Electronics Association.
