  •  It looks like a broad ruling (0+ / 0-)

    The majority's reasoning is based, pretty squarely as far as I can see, on legislative intent. And Congress made it pretty clear when they overturned a previous court decision with an amended law, that they want to give broadcasters licensing control over any technology that carries their content into homes. The decision interprets the language of "performance" and "public" accordingly.

    I don't particularly like this result, but it seems to me the blame lies with Congress, not the Court.

    The real USA Patriot Act was written in 1789. It's called the Bill of Rights.
