HomeNewsAereo and The Risk of Innovating with Gary Shapiro Cali Lewis April 25, 2014 News 2 Comments 8 Shares Google+ 0 Twitter 0 Facebook 8 LinkedIn 0 Reddit 0 Pin It Share 0 Buffer 0 8 Shares × http://youtu.be/ZgmrRkVmahY 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.

I currently have poor reception of several local stations. I hope for myself and many others who have the same problem that Aereo wins. Here is the link to the Supreme Court audio file of the argument on this case. Interesting how the arguments are handled. http://www.supremecourt.gov/oral_arguments/argument_audio_detail.aspx?argument=13-461&TY=2013 Harlan April 25, 2014 I hope Aereo wins, but I think the high priced lawyers will.
