Free-to-air TV to smartphones survives copyright c

Joob (2565221) writes "Federal Court of Australia holds: Optus "TV Now" service does not infringe copyright in AFL and NRL broadcasts on free to air TV.

The service lets users record then watch free to air TV from smartphones, PCs or tablets. If your device of choice is an Apple, you can watch "near live" broadcasts within a few minutes of the actual broadcast.

Whether this is a win for cloud providers remains to be seen. An appeal is on the cards, given the $153 million paid by Telstra for exclusive rights to broadcast AFL games over the internet and mobile devices...not to mention the $1.25billion AFL exclusive media rights deal for the 2012 season."
