It seems to me that EIT data could be integrated as one source of data in a
larger listings distribution system. In theory, only one person per market
needs to be receiving the EIT/ETT data for everybody in the market to
I am not a lawyer and I can't give you permission to redistribute my
station's EIT data, but there is a strong case to be made that you don't
need our permission to do so. It is data about our program stream that is
