The industry is taking Locast seriously. Apparently, some very good lawyers concluded what we’ve always known: Locast is legal. These lawyers even go on to say that Locast not only meets the letter of the law but does exactly what Congress had in mind: boost the reach of local broadcast stations so that people can get their free local news, weather, sports, and entertainment. We have no idea who wrote this (a reporter sent it to us) but one thing is for sure: the lawyers who wrote this White Paper agree with every other lawyer we ever consulted about Locast. Copyright law (17 U.S.C. 111(a)(5)) and judicial precedent allow a non-profit to retransmit a local broadcast signal over the Internet, as Locast does.
