U.S. Copyright Policy for the 21st Century
Chapter 8: Cable, satellite, and the future of television
The television business has been jolted by rapidly evolving technology over the past several years, but often those technologies conflict with long-established, carefully crafted copyright regimes based on decades of historic precedent. Where new meets old, the Copyright Office, as the primary steward of U.S. copyright policy, often gets stuck in the middle. This chapter addresses cases such as ABC Television v. Aereo and Fox Television Stations v. FilmOn X, the applicability of the section 111 license to new distribution models, and the FCC’s attempt at “unlocking” cable boxes.
