The technological revolution may be responsible for the radical shifts in the way that we consume and interact with content, but the fundamental legal principles that protect consumers and content owners alike are still in place. This was put to the test with the Optus TV Now case in which the NRL, AFL, and Telstra sought an injunction to prevent Optus from continuing to provide the service.

This week on Televised Revolution we chat with Peter Black, Senior Lecturer in Law at the Queensland University of Technology, about the case and its implications on time shifting content.

Also up for discussion:

  • BTjunkie shuts down for good.
  • HBO invests $10 million into streaming service Quickflix.
