STATEMENT FROM AEREO CEO AND FOUNDER CHET KANOJIA ON UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT DECISION

Court decision denies consumers the ability to use a cloud-based antenna to access free over-the-air television, further eliminating choice and competition in the television marketplace

New York, New York (June 25, 2014) - The following statement can be attributed to Aereo CEO and Founder, Chet Kanojia:

"Today's decision by the United States Supreme Court is a massive setback for the American consumer. We've said all along that we worked diligently to create a technology that complies with the law, but today's decision clearly states that how the technology works does not matter. This sends a chilling message to the technology industry.  It is troubling that the Court states in its decision that, 'to the extent commercial actors or other interested entities may be concerned with the relationship between the development and use of such technologies and the Copyright Act, they are of course free to seek action from Congress.' (Majority, page 17) That begs the question: Are we moving towards a permission-based system for technology innovation?"

"Consumer access to free-to-air broadcast television is an essential part of our country's fabric. Using an antenna to access free-to-air broadcast television is still meaningful for more than 60 million Americans across the United States.  And when new technology enables consumers to use a smarter, easier to use antenna, consumers and the marketplace win. Free-to-air broadcast television should not be available only to those who can afford to pay for the cable or satellite bundle."

"Justice Scalia's dissent gets it right. He calls out the majority's opinion as 'built on the shakiest of foundations.' (Dissent, page 7)  Justice Scalia goes on to say that 'The Court vows that its ruling will not affect cloud-storage providers and cable television systems, see ante, at 16-17, but it cannot deliver on that promise given the imprecision of its results-driven rule.' (Dissent, page 11)"

"We are disappointed in the outcome, but our work is not done.  We will continue to fight for our consumers and fight to create innovative technologies that have a meaningful and positive impact on our world."

Yours truly,
Chet Kanojia

If this really was a dying business no buddy would be interested. The fact is there is money (exploit) to be made  by the economic elite that run our country. There has been deliberately sabotaging / crippling this service for quite awhile. Not only the union see this, those who been paying attention are also aware. The intent is just to devalue the product so to allow some corp.  to fly in and buy the  business at a  artificially depressed value to be later presented by the media as a god send to the public as the great savior offering better service and lower cost...hurrah!!!  
Only at the expense of the workers in the said new company in the form of  lower wages and less benefits and the newly unemployed workers of the post office (another blow to the middle class by the elitist)
When this take over is done the story (some 60 minute episode) will be a interesting drama of corruption and closed door agreement between government officials and the cooperate power lords. A story of  winners the 1% and the losers.. you and me. 

my only critic of this article is it seems to highlight the driving force behind the changes make.: 
" mounting debt that reached $23 billion by the end of 2013"
Though it did mention the: 
"post office insist the system is losing money because mail delivery is becoming irrelevant to an increasingly digital world, both Donahoe ..."

If failed at emphasizing this little tid bit of factoid:
"..and the unions have asserted that the biggest challenge is one set forth in 2006 by Congress that requires the USPS to pre-fund the next 75 years of retirement and health benefits for its workers by 2016...an unusual arrangement not required by any other government department or private company"

Introduction

“The End of Days” will come to fruition not because ancient society tea leaf prophesy’s, or some biblical wrath of God. It is in our nature as humans to be self destructive. Society’s, cultures, religions and governments are reflections of our selves, manifesting this fact. As a species with the intellect to change our world and the ability to experience the euphoria of love, will to its end, by it's nature, self for-fill it's demise... 

In spite, of our nature, over time there are those among us whom seem to be enlighten to our plight, seen a promised land a world of hope. Their words “I have a Dream”, “Imagine” give hope to this pessimist, the hope Dreams come true and Imagination becomes reality
