Not sure how webcasters are pertinent to the discussion about public broadcasting, but I found the following comments interesting:

"Ivins argues that users could still make copies of such broadcasts for private use; they simply could not turn around and redistribute them commercially. When a broadcaster spends money to prepare and distribute footage of an event or a historical work, it should be assured that somebody else can't benefit from that investment by copying the program and retransmitting it, he says.

Thats out of scope of the P2P transmissions where the file sharers are not benefitting commercially, which is really crux of the problem. But if commercial value is at stake, then webcasters better formulate a good business plan and implement it quick before they allow video file sharing to become a pandemic. Half of the blame for the music industry's inablity to control content can be attributed to the fact that they looked at the problem in the face but sat on their hands.
