After Supreme Court Ruling, Aereo’s Rivals in TV Streaming Seize Opening

The main difference between these companies — which have not drawn the ire of broadcasters — and Aereo is that their customers own the antennas and capture signals in their homes, as opposed to remotely. [Mark Ely,Simple.TV] and [Mark Buff,Mohu] say they believe that will satisfy the requirement under copyright law that the transmissions be private performances, a position that Aereo argued unsuccessfully before the Supreme Court. “Where you capture the signal makes all the difference,” Mr. Ely said. “This fits squarely in fair use.” – Emily Steel, The New York Times
