Time Warner Cable Should Win This One
But if the judge agrees with Viacom, then TWC says the Cablevision deal (as well as others such as a licensing arrangement with DISH Network) constitutes a breach of several agreements, including the “Suite Services Agreement” (MTV, VH1, MTV2, VH1 Classic…), the “Core Services Agreement,” and the “Comedy Agreement” (Comedy Central). TWC says it would be entitled to terminate those agreements or demand identical Internet distribution rights.
Will Time Warner Win? They should, unless the judge suffers from a total lack of logic. There’s a lot of that going around these days.
