Argus Posted November 6, 2009 Author Report Share Posted November 6, 2009 This boils down to another intellectual property fight. Do television stations deserve to be compensated when others make money from using their product? I don't know. To me it smacks of large web sites like Amazon or Ebay or Google demanding ISPs pay them for the privilage of letting their customers have access. I mean, without the ISPs, just how do Amazon, Ebay and Google think their product is going to get to anyone to buy? In that sense, they take advantage of the access ISPs provide and hope to make themselves attractive and useful enough to make a profit. The TV stations/networks are really no different except it's cable/satellite companies giving people access. And of course, we have less choice in what we access due to government restriction.
