    A major difference between Google and cable companies is that Google does not charge for people to access it’s search results. The Time Warner ruling was made to ensure that people without cable(which you have to pay for) would continue to receive basic television programs. Thus, it circles back to the argument of whether or not people have free access to the information elsewhere, which clearly they do.
