[quote]What you are really asking is what makes Aereo different than cable companies. And, others are asking what makes Aereo different than an antenna company.

[quote]but protecting their business model is not a constitutional issue. [/quote] I'm less interested in the legal side than the practical side. There are probably all sorts of legal theft.
