We talked with Gary Shapiro, CEO of the CEA (that puts on CES), about the Aereo case that’s currently being considered by the U.S. Supreme Court. Aereo’s business is based on renting DVRs that they own and house to consumers for recording shows broadcast over the air and allowing streaming playback wherever, whenever. Broadcasters are calling this an unauthorized rebroadcast. The Supreme Court will decide the case in June or July, but it could be very pivotal to how television is made available to consumers in the future.

Gary talked to us about the details and ramifications of the case, and how a decision for broadcasters could harm other innovations down the line. To see all the things Gary and the CEA are doing to help innovation thrive check out The Innovation Movement.
