Re: Aereo is NOT broadcasting
The definition of re-broadcasting or public performance does not stipulate the size of the audience
Amazingly, you just found out that your rebroadcasting to yourself! You know how to write a cheque...
To the second point that everybody seems to make, it is prohibited by Copyright law to make copies or re-distribute protected content.
Amazingly you are suddenly required to show up at Amazon's warehouses because they can't send protected content via postal mail: that would be re-distribution. Very much prohibited. I won't even say anything about ISPs and IP backbone providers.
You end up with a nifty setup and want to start renting it out to others? That's no longer the same, and you will be found infringing.
Amazingly, this is suddenly no longer related to copyright law but clearly a prior restraint of trade: You can't rent that cable!
The moment that this use is mechanised by clever technology to overcome such limiting factors--and especially when its sole purpose is to make money off it--it is no longer fair use. It is as simple as that.
"Fair use" does not even apply. And suddenly "making money" (as in, shipping books through the worl without paying the holder of the book's copyright) is despicable? Pull another one.
