Re: I am tired...
Where do I sign.
I Agree 100%
Ads or Cash not both.
Works Pretty good for Netflix and Redbox.
I'd go cash hands down. I might not get much, but I'll be happy living an ad free existence.

A re-hearing en banc is unusual in a federal court. This is grasping at straws.
On page 7 of the petition (thanks for the direct link Karl), the reason for desperation is apparent. Dish and TWC are considering partnering with Aero or implementing Aero like services, which would allow them to bypass the need to negotiate rebroadcast rights.
If Aero is just an Internet based antenna cable and doesn't violate copyright, a lot of cable fees for local stations could be lost.
The argument by the plaintiffs seems to be that Aero is providing public performances without a license. That wouldn't seem to square with the technology, they have a separate antenna for each subscriber, and provide that subscriber only channels they could ordinarily receive over the air. This isn't public in any way most would understand it.
Another court, did issue an injunction against another service. How similar that service is to Aero isn't clear.
The case enjoined is here - »docs.justia.com/cases/federal/ap···8-27.pdf it was a simple streaming of live television without permission, but apparently without separate antennas and without verification of residence within the area of OTA reception.
I'm not a lawyer, but the petition for review en banc seems weaker than I'd have expected.
Congress could mess up a one piece jigsaw puzzle.
the whole public performance thing was already decided at district court level, so I don't suspect that will be raised again. Meanwhile, their current case is not over - so asking for an en-banc hearing before even working with the current judge? not likely to go over so well.

I agree with both of you guys ads or money I pay for Sirius radio so I don't have to listen to ads like radio that is on the ground. (And that it works where regular radio does't)
