Aereo just lost their Supreme Court case

Oh well. According to NPR, the popular TV streaming service was declared illegal by the court’s 6-3 decision. This effectively reverses a lower court’s decision that’s been hotly contested ever since.

Don’t get me wrong–I’ve never even used Aereo. But I can’t help feeling like this reflects the inability of the US Government and large corporations to “catch up” with small business innovation, especially in technology.

Combined with the escalating troubles in Iraq and the American right wing’s insistence on further, expanded involvement, looks like we’re headed deeper into the dark ages.

Huzzah.
