Wednesday Writs: Betamax and Kramer Was Right About the Mail Rewind Edition


Em Carpenter

Em was one of those argumentative children who was sarcastically encouraged to become a lawyer, so she did. She is a proud life-long West Virginian, and, paradoxically, a liberal. In addition to writing about society, politics and culture, she enjoys cooking, podcasts, reading, and pretending to be a runner. She will correct your grammar. You can find her on Twitter.

As recently as Aereo they are still trying to walk it back without destroying the entire industry that’s grown up around ways to copy and share copyrighted material.Report
