"Mobile access to Orb or Slingbox does not include using your mobile as
a modem."

Not sure what that means. They certainly support mobile>usb>pc or datacard use, so it's not that. Do they mean no Slingbox viewing on a pc attached to a mobile? Why?

I saw this paper when it came out Randy, thanks - I had several
interrelated questions about TOS/AUP, and whether or not the presumed
legality/illegality of a potentially popular non-infringing home
media server vs. standard P2P applications (and the jaundiced view of
them, rightly or wrongly) would affect what folks are doing or
considering doing.  The questions were also somewhat specific to
North America, which is a substantially different market than the one
described in this paper, and which may well evolve differently.

This is a very interesting and thought-provoking paper, but it
doesn't answer the questions I was asking, I'm sorry if that wasn't
