Networks' Win in Signal Fight Challenged by EFF
The author of the brief, EFF staff attorney Mitch Stoltz, said in a statement that the networks are "twisting the law" at viewers' expense.
"Many of the services that Hollywood is trying to shut down are simply conceptually moving the antenna that used to be on your roof to their roof," Stoltz said. "TV viewers have a right to choose when and how they watch free TV - and courts have recognized that. Networks can't block consumer choices just because they didn't think of it first and want a cut of the profits from someone else's idea."
