I'm sorry, but I don't get this part

"the innovation of remotely providing Internet users access to content they’re entitled to have – may be in jeopardy."

How? With such services, it's a *direct* agreement between people.
With "broadcast," Aereo is taking a signal, and re-transmitting it. All this talk of "the cloud" being "in danger" just seems a little crazy.

Aereo trying to generate support by claiming if they lose, the world will come to an end and all retransmission will end. But the truth is it will only end for those who want to retransmit for free - like Aereo.

Aereo should be able to retransmit for free, this is free TV.

No one should have to pay for free TV that they are entitled to, whether you have cable, satellite, an antenna or Aereo, if you watch free TV just as it was broadcast, you should not have to pay.

Now if like TWC and DirecTV you are inserting your own commercials, you should pay.
