i2Coalition Statement on Supreme Court Aereo Decision(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) –  Internet Infrastructure Coalition (i2Coalition) Co-Founder and Public Policy Chair David Snead released the following statement following the Supreme Court’s Aereo decision:

“In the Supreme Court ruling on Aereo, the majority stated that cloud computing won’t be impacted by this decision.  Cloud computing is increasingly central to modern technology.  Content owners, intellectual property rights organizations, broadcasters, and those challenging Aereo have repeatedly claimed that a decision in their favor won’t affect cloud computing.  For the sake of consumers, businesses and the economy as a whole, we call on those supporting today’s decision to honor that statement.”
