This morning, the Supreme Court ruled against internet service Aereo:
From NBC News:
Launched a year ago in New York and then extended to 10 other U.S. cities, it allows customers to watch over-the-air TV programs on a smartphone, tablet, or computer for as little as $8 a month. Selections can be viewed live or recorded for later viewing.Shortly after the service was launched, the nation’s major broadcast networks filed a lawsuit claiming that Aereo illegally retransmited their programs without paying for them. The court ruled against Aereo by a vote of 6-3.
Users and admirers are disappointed, of course:
But nobody’s taking the news harder than “Bill Clinton”:
Tough break for Slick Willie, huh?
