Re: It will be an easy, but expensive win for Aereo
It's Cablevision, not Time Warner.
I think the difference is that Cablevision has actually licensed the content with the carriers, which Aereo has not. Cablevision's case is around whether their licensing agreement covers the remote DVR use case. Aereo's case is around whether they are allowed to capture and relay OTA broadcasts to their users, WITHOUT a license from the broadcasters. Quite a different legal question, I think.
I don't really have much of an opinion one way or the other around the remote DVR question. Here is a good article on it. Seems like it's settled, and was a fairly narrow decision.
