  • So NOW they are worried ?


    What it comes down to, is, these "broadcasters" do not have the already developed infrastructure to compete, nor the brains to come up with anything, so instead they "sit on" development and freely spend stockholder money on pointless litigation.


    AND they freely spend money, TO THEIR BUDDIES IN WASHINGTON, HOLLYWOOD, AND CHINA, and on politically correct BOMBS, like THE LONE RANGER !


    Who is fooling ANYONE here ?
