I suppose the argument would go something like this. CBS has had a contract with Time Warner, and the negotiations for a follow-on contract have failed within the time allowed in the previous contract. That allowed CBS to cut off access to all Time Warner customers. You might not be paying Time Warner for cable TV, but you ARE a Time Warner customer, if only for internet service. CBS blocking access to Time Warner would then include you as a Time Warner customer. Legal jargon can be used to let a legal action drag on for years and years. Launch a second class-action suite against CBS and see what happens.
