OPINION://Placeshifting over wireless

Electronic News writes about the dilemma facing the wireless industry: accepting placeshifting technology and services (to drive 3G) or blocking it (to protect their own video services).

I wrote about placeshifting many times and addressed this same issue a few months ago. My opinion is blocking is not the way to go, it is not sustainable. Why not cooperate and take some video content out of a proprietary (but not spectrum abundant) network like DVB-H and allow it to travel over your 3G network?
