Not to stir up a hornet's nest here, but what about retransmission of
radio signals via remote receivers controlled over the internet?
These are often used by radio amateurs (hams) to detect their own
transmissions at distant locations but they can also be used to listen
to normal AM, FM, shortwave, and longwave broadcasting stations.
Listening to baseball games, something for which MLB.com would charge,
is certainly within the realm of what remote radios can do.
