TechCrunch: "In 2000, the now-defunct iCraveTV allowed its users to watch live television over the Internet. It retransmitted broadcast television without obtaining permission from or paying broadcasters, framed the retransmission with paid advertisements, and users watched while paying nothing. A federal court in Pennsylvania found iCraveTV was likely on the hook for copyright infringement. iCraveTV shut down, and the court’s decision appears to have had a blanket chilling effect on Internet-based television. No one came along to take iCraveTV’s place."
