Abstract

Mark McKenna quoted in Forbes article Aereo Loses Big As Supreme Court Calls It Equivalent To Cable TV on June 25.

Mark McKenna of Notre Dame Law School wasn’t so sure, saying the decision might threaten cloud services that allow users to transmit copies of protected content to themselves.

“I think Breyer meant here to distinguish Dropbox, where I might store copies I legitimately acquired, but I don’t think it’s much comfort since I only owned the first copy and Dropbox doesn’t really know if I owned it or not,” McKenna told me, via e-mail. “That’s the cloud companies’ concern — do they have to now make sure all of their users are only making available things they own?”
