I thought technology was supposed to make things easier and more efficient. All I ever read is how someone develops a new technology and someone else sues because of the new innovation.
AND possible competition.... Here is a quote from the last paragraphs of TFA....
"HBO's Zitter noted that Sling is not the only company doing time-shifting and place-shifting of video content.
Zitter says HBO has an exclusive mobile distribution deal with Cingular Wireless LLC and also distributes its content to cell phones in nine countries outside the U.S. "
Sounds like HBO doesn't want any competition in the place-shifting field and will litigate any competitors out of the market.
