Supreme Court Rulings on TV Viewing and Cell Phone Searches

The Supreme Court issued two major technology-related decisions today involving how we watch TV and when police can search our cell phones. The court said police must obtain warrants to search cell phones in an age when they contain extensive and highly personal data. The court also said start-up antenna company Aereo is effectively like a cable company and has to play by the same rules--a big victory for the broadcast industry that was threatened by Aereo's new business model. Kojo explores what the two rulings mean for consumers.
