  2. Does this mean I have been violating copyright law by getting Broadcast TV from the antenna on my roof?
       What difference does it make if I rent the tiny antenna from Aereo or have one on my roof?
        Don't Broadcast networks want to reach as many people as they can with their advertising, so they can charge more for advertising?

  3. tv died to me when i was 12 the year was 1999. sports internet and school with farm work was plenty for me. tv must survive in the suburbs as there is nothing to do and your to tired from driving to think.
