What quacks like cable TV is Cable TV.

Supreme Court of USA has given a rather strange ruling on Cable TV vs. Cloud Storage services. While saving Text or music or video on cloud remains text, music or video but if Cable TV is saved on cloud it ceases to be video and remains Video.

According to Sup Court, “What looks like TV, walks like TV, quacks like TV is a TV.”

A reasoning it did not adopt in its 1984 Sony Corp. of America v. Universal City Studios, Inc., 464 U.S. 417 followed by Appellate Court in 2008 in Cablevision case upholding the right of Storage providers and absolving them of breach of copyright by the conduct of users, Strange reasoning.

Shall dwell into full analysis ASAP.

Full judgement in Aereo  Case.
