Or is this typical for SCOTUS?
From what I hear about SCOTUS, it's new. They used to be willing to take issues on and rule about the core of what's being contested. Since Roberts, it seems to me, they've tried to rule as narrowly as possible, and try to make their decisions based on a technicality around the margin to send it back to an appeals court without actually ruling on the substance of the case.
We might take a relatively loose definition of porn here. If you are posting something and then asking for payment to remove it, then that 'it' is pornographic, at least to the target of the extortion.
That would be a terrible definition of pornography.
your location can be anywhere in the world that is connected to the Internet.
I'm not sure that's true. There is some restriction to only those people who live within the antenna's broadcast area (New York). I'm not sure how it's done though, do you have to sign up with a physical address and then you can access it from anywhere, or do they attempt to make sure you are currently located somewhere appropriate when receiving the stream?
It also includes the controversial "red flag" sections that were recently (and solely) used to find the MP3Tunes guy personally liable for millions. There is absolutely no way a company is going to risk that sort of liability for cloud services, especially if their officers must operate under the threat of personal liability.
Which I'm sure is exactly the outcome the **AAs are hoping for.
