I entirely disagree that Kelo is not applicable. This is what O'Connor wrote in her dissent.

"Any property may now be taken for the benefit of another private party, but the fallout from this decision will not be random. The beneficiaries are likely to be those citizens with disproportionate influence and power in the political process, including large corporations and development firms."

Sure, the industrial revolution created a great need for labor. People legally immigrated from all over the world. Now, we have no great economic revolution. There is no great need for labor. And people are illegally entering the country by the thousands. There are millions here. We ignore the law, and let them work illegally. And now we are considering increasing the amount of legal immigrants, because supposedly there is some great need for labor. Really? Let's get the employment ratio back up to 70% or so, and then we can talk about it. Immigration policy is designed to control the entry of immigrants, it's time we started treating that way.

I agree with some of your points. Aereo differs from Dish Network in that every customer is served from a unique streamed file. The files are also created when the customer demands it rather than being served from a common stored file like you would see in on demand service with the cable company.
