Why Johnny can't stream: How video copyright went insane

http://j.mp/OuPxWQ  (ars technica)

  "To understand what Cablevision decided and why it matters, we need to
   understand a bit about how copyright law treats broadcasting and
   streaming. For a very long time, copyright has covered more than just
   making copies. In 1856, for example, Congress gave playwrights an
   exclusive right to stage their plays in public. That "public
   performance right" has gradually expanded to cover almost everything
   that can be copyrighted and performed, from movies to musicals."
