Time Warner's New Cable Broadband Terms Explained

Stacy @ GIGAOM has been keeping a watchful eye on the meandering ways of Time Warner Cable and their new user agreement. Basically she points out the flaws in it, giving it a well deserved thumbs down.

Here's who should be upset:

Vonage

Skype

Gizmo5

and just about all the VoIP operators.

Add in:

UStream

Justin.TV

Livestream.com

YouTube

Vimeo

Also:

SightSpeed (Logitech)

ooVoo

Yahoo

Microsoft

Oh..yes, just about anyone in the business of real time and fat pipe communications. I guess that includes Google too with Wave, GoogleTalk and more.

Why should they be upset? Because we're seeing the cable TV model applied to broadband communications, something I wrote back on April 14 of this year as a follow up to Stacy's post then.
