Comment: Why not? Learn from Verizon.. (Score 2) 137

The broadcasters are not happy with this move, of course, claiming that Aereo should not be allowed to flip-flop on how it defines itself.

Verizon has been on a tear to get itself reclassified as a common carrier for a while.

Loopholes: not just for big companies anymore.

Hi folks, I have wondered about this.... If you have a product like TrueCrypt and get a National Security Letter telling you that you can't talk about it, does that include your attorney? I seem to remember that someone decided to sue NSA over this... Just curious...

I was suggesting that the bulk of the complaints are likely coming from cabbies.

Michael Peevey mentions "safey rules" but then goes on to 'lacking airport permits, as well as lacking proper "trade dress" on their vehicles and lacking proof of insurance.' Ok, lacking proof of insurance I can understand. So carry papers in the glovebox and all is well.
Airport permits? That's just money denied to the airports. I'd wager the complaints that are not from cabbies are from the airport authorities for this very reason.
Trade dress? Fine, slap on a cheap magnetic sign. That is not a safety issue.

They dress is up as "safety rules" but the real motives are financial.
