Currently cable companies pay the broadcasters to carry their channel. If Aereo was allowed people might cut out the cable company and just receive the programming for free. This would be lost revenue for the cable company and broadcasters. So instead of providing a competing product, they sue to keep their monopoly.
People that could receive OTA would not bother paying Aereo unless they wanted the option to watch elsewhere. Having the antennas somewhere with good reception was a huge plus, and the main reason I considered Aereo.
Since this is all done electronically, what do the thieves do to prevent the banks from tracking where the money went? Why would banks allow transfers to institutions that don't allow the money to be tracked and returned?
Crashes should be very unlikely when everyone is following the rules of the road. So if the car has to pick between the guy that cut it off or the car next to it, it picks the car that cut it off. Maintain the right of way if no other option is available without creating a crash.
You might just be able to use the system as a placebo. Just state the rules and have the system work weakly. A lot of people might improve just knowing the system is in place. It would be the 80% solution.
