Re: Sad? probably. Surprising? no.
An interesting side-benefit of the internet is that those that are so certain of their superiority can reveal themselves to be the ultimate doofuses...
Tell everyone how Dred Scott "established case law" still stands, made by those "qualified to judge" back in 1857...
This case can be overturned at any time when more clear-thinking occupants reside at the Supreme Court...and it will. This case is akin to SCOTUS banning the Sony Betamax VCR in 1985.
Aereo is essentially a cloud-based Betamax and since over-the-air TV programming is free to all in the US (and supported by cost-free public spectrum to the TV networks making massive profits), this is the most stupid, f-cking SCOTUS opinion I've seen in a long time. (Maybe just behind Dred Scott and Citizens United.)
Note that only one Supreme Court Justice (Kagan) uses email. There you have it.
