Seems a little shady

I'm certainly not a lawyer, but having a bunch of companies all getting program producers to sign agreements banning them from making their content available to a potential competitor seems legally shady to me. It isn't as if they're saying that this content is exclusive to their cable company; they're letting other cable companies have it but specifically barring Internet distribution.

Any lawyers willing to offer an opinion here?

It is morally shady that is for sure.

Legally shady? likely not due to the golden rule, The one with the gold makes the rules.

unfortunately that seems to be a forgotten concept in our government if you know who to lobby to as a company.
