8:00 am
newly design crossover suv, it will be sold over 100 countries. and in mississippi, thad cochran finally pulled that win over his tea party challenger to win the runoff. he was helped by democrats who crossed party lines to help me election. and the obama administration with more sanctions against the ukraine, there are planet newspaper ads saying that sanctions may her jobs. the obama administration is clearing the way for the first exports of unrefined u.s. oil in four decades. crude oil. not since the 1970's have american companies been allowed to sell their oil overseas. we have more on how big of an event that this is for u.s. oil
8:01 am
companies. >> symbolically this is an enormous decision, even if the changes are not felt right away. pioneer natural resources and pipeline operator enterprise now have approval from the commerce for a very light type of oil. it goes through mild processing in order to stabilize it, and then it can be shipped out. when it gets to the destination needs to be refined even further and it can be made into jet fuel or diesel. the u.s. does not allow crude exports. this really treads the line. does give the commerce department some little room to be able to say that there has been no change in the expert policy -- export policy but at the end of the day it is oil being exported from the country. >> as you say, these are just initial steps.
8:02 am
going to mover the needle in terms of exports of oil? words 50,000 barrels a day will be exported, kind of a drop in the bucket for this market. will take a while. you have to classify oil correctly and get this into the right barrels. is this aestion is, precursor to a broader lift of the export sanctions. it will definitely raise prices that could motivate the drillers to drill a little bit more. a lot of oil will most likely be going to a ship. they have a lot of capacity for these -- this kind of oil, and there appears to be no cap on how much can be exported. that is an interesting part of the situation. >> so far 2 companies are affected. what about other oil companies? >> pioneer and enterprise and those who work in
8:03 am
the permian and utica shales, it is still too early to say how much it will help them, because we don't know about the economics and how much it will be transported, or how economical it will be for them. there could be a slightly negative response for u.s. because this will squeeze their margins and the longer-term, bigger implications are with the companies that are already investing in processing, like bp, and gender morgan. they are putting money into units to turn things into propane that can be shipped out. this decision by the commerce department undercuts that, it lines up making it easier to propane so- to make the question is, what about these kinds of investments? million is the $360 refinery in houston, that bp has
8:04 am
invested in, with additional plants that have been proposed, and phillips 66. see how these to probes will continue to be -- politics, what a turnaround for the tea party. two weeks after the historic victory over eric cantor, tea party candidates suffered major losses in last night's primary, most notably in mississippi where incumbent republican thad cochran beat chris mcdaniel in a runoff. other tea party candidates also lost their races as well last night. for more we're joined by the editor of bloomberg politics. $11 million was poured into mississippi by outside groups. why was this so important? >> republican versus republican action. it was important that they win
8:05 am
the senate seat. the other tea party guy, if he had one, democrats would have fought for the seat. the chamber of commerce and other republican groups can work with republican candidates to get stuff done. --re was increased turnout which means republicans can be more confident. you have all these senate races around the country where republicans will harness tea party energy, and work with these outside groups, to win these races. >> this was a pretty incredible comeback for him. did they finally wake up the republican establishment? >> they are looking at african-american voters. if a republican can make an appeal task americans, this is good nationally.
8:06 am
this was from republicans and suburban women and other voters who did not turn out who recognized that they could lose the seat. a hard thing for republicans to say, if we focus and get a message again, we can turn out the vote. we have 13 senate races around the country where republicans will try to build a comparable coalition to win the race. >> do they have a chance to turn the senate? >> that is a big question in politics. about 10 races they need to draw from. if the election were from the day i think that they would. heard theantor thing establishment but today the establishment says, we can build coalitions to win in a primary in mississippi. in politics like everything in life, confidence matters. >> you can look at the wind from eric cantor and say, the tea
8:07 am
party is gaining momentum and is gaining confidence but overall, how did they do in the primaries? >> it has not been a great year for the tea party. is toick for republicans say, what does the tea party bring? people in general want lower taxes and less government. if you take the core message, that is what it is, that is why it is important for republicans not to dance on the grave of the tea party, and that they want people in the tea party to be part of the coalition. the dirty little secret is that if the republicans do well, that tea party energy will establish it, and that matters in the election. >> what are the implications for the democrats? >> they missed an opportunity, and if mcdaniel had one, they could have played that in the race and i have to figure out if they have a monopoly on african-american votes. short-term they want to keep control of the senate. this gives republicans a chance to focus on mostly playing
8:08 am
offense in the midterm senate races, not having to defend the seat in mississippi. >> thank you very much, mark halperin, the bloomberg political managing editor. moving and shaking this hour, lebron james, four years ago -- he famously took his talents to south beach. exercisee is free to his option and become a free agent next week and he could go to another team or take more money and stay with the miami heat. his first team was the cleveland cavaliers. i asked the cavaliers owner dan gilbert. we happen to be in detroit. we asked if lebron would return to the cleveland cavaliers. >> in terms of the collective bargaining agreement, i am prohibited in any way, shape or form to talk about players under
8:09 am
contract with other teams. comeback a week from now and we can talk about it. >> you cannot say if you are preparing an offer. -- adamsay anything silvers fines could be even worse. will be back in a week to ask you about lebron james. probablye teams would pay $100 million for him, the nba rules limit his pay. scarlet fu is here to explain why even though james was paid $100 million -- $100 million this year he is still underpaid? heno matter where he goes will be underpaid because he boosts the value of any franchise. the at what happened to cavaliers would he left, their value plunged by 121 million dollars, to 355 million. the miami heat rose to $425
8:10 am
million. we know that the heat build their franchise around king james and now it is worth $770 million according to reports, seventh-inning nba out of 30 teams, they started off at 12. salary, the mba limits how much that he can make this season. he was supposed to make about 20 million? the mba is the only professional sports late to put a cap on individual player salary. the maximum he can make is 95.8 million over the next four years and that averages to $24 million, annually. you look at where he ranks in the top paid nba players, he is tied for eighth place with chris bosh, he does not crack the top five. the highest paid nba player is kobe bryant, who makes $30 million.
8:11 am
lebron james is really the biggest bargain because of his halo effect. he is a fan favorite and helped the heat increase average attendance and ticket prices and think about how money lebron james jerseys are sold. when you talk about salary that is a small portion of it. and he makes $61 million, most of it coming from companies like mcdonald's and samsung and coca-cola. they are more than making up for the bargain salary that lebron james makes in the nba. >> what is the talk right now about where he might go or if he will stay in miami. is a lot of discussion and the cleveland cavaliers and maybe the l.a. lakers or clippers. they have a new owner as well as the houston rockets, franchises that might build up around him. the back burner
8:12 am
what happens with carmelo anthony of the new york knicks. he had declared free agency and i don't know if this makes it a more restrictive market for mr. anthony. >> good stuff in free agency. scarlet fu on lebron james. an entire industry awaits the supreme court. rulingll announce their on the broadcasters and world cup fever, one u.s. fan says this should be mandatory, and world cup holiday. he is looking to the white house for help.
8:13 am
8:14 am
8:15 am
8:16 am
>> first, bloomberg. >> you are watching "in the loop ," i am betty liu. you will want to watch what the supreme court does and the next few days, we would hear what they have to say about whether aereo is legal, they have been at war with broadcasters on whether they should be paying to stream their content. broadcasters say this is an unequivocal yes, they should be paid. and that their content is being stolen. but what is the -- the high
8:17 am
court looking at? john has represented a number of broadcasters in these before. you believe the broadcasters will win? >> >> the legal issue is, are you publicly performing the copyrighted content on a broadcast signal, when you stream it for thousands of people over the internet. their position is, i am sending thousands of private performances simultaneously. they drew this out of the unfortunate decision of the in which- in 2008, cablevision argued that they should be able to put their dvr rather thanhe head in the home, and the content publiclyd, you are
8:18 am
performing it because you are sending it over the long wire. >> you are publicly performing it. so -- >> that was the argument, they came from these venues and they just borrowed from that argument to apply to their own business model. and in that lower court, did it hold? >> it held in the second circuit. >> why wouldn't it hold in the high court? >> there is a case, hard cases make bad law. the functionality can change, the money flow did not change, nothing changed except, where this is recorded. i think the second circuit struggled to write a decision to say that this is ok. when you do that you have unintended consequences. >> this is the question for me, about -- this is a public performance. and therefore this is a legal. the -- seeners had
8:19 am
this story before. the copyright act was not changed it until my teen 76. the reason that congress acted after all those decades was the dawn of cable television. cable television operators put up an antenna, and packaged it with a bill and the program guide, and sent this to paying subscribers and they said, you are publicly performing and the supreme court said, this is not really a public performance. theress reacted by taking presence of law here, they said, if you pick up a broadcast signal and transmit this by any technology, if the technology exists now or is invented later -- the whole purpose is because they knew that technology had gotten ahead of the law. >> and you should pay for that. >> when that was written, the cable operators came on board and it was written so they would have to pay, you have billions
8:20 am
of dollars of transmission fees and broadcasters pay them. the supreme court comes up for the broadcasters -- what happens to aereo? >> i think that it goes away. >> there is no alternative. >> i don't think that there is a contract around this. >> does that mean that any other company that comes up with a streaming service of broadcast content is likely to have to pay for that? there can be no other area that comes up? >> unless someone comes up with a legal theory and gets to the court system -- i think eventually it will be shut down for the same reason. if it walks like a duck and i went down duck, to the studio in brooklyn and had never actually seen this, they got this going. they say this is an antenna or -- rental service.
8:21 am
we are renting an antenna. i say, how do you like your antenna service and they looked at me like i was crazy. i said, this is an antenna service and they said, this is cable and you can explain it to people who are subscribers. that this is different than cable. >> does this have any implications for other industries at all, any other companies at all? >> yes. this is a copyright case. the law of the united states and most of the world is that copyright owners and international property owners have the exclusive right to determine how their property is used. the abridgments are specifically drawn by congress and if they open this up, i think you have a huge battle in washington over intellectual property law. >> john, thank you for joining us. coming up, showdown on the soccer field, the u.s. against

>> first, bloomberg. >> you are watching "in the loop ," good morning, i am betty liu. we are on the markets. equity futures are mixed right now and we have more economic data coming out just a few moments, including durable goods orders. numbers withme gp measured inflation numbers, that lots of investors are watching the inflation scenario. we are on the markets again in 30 minutes. ♪ >> maybe the u.s. is getting
8:26 am
soccer fever after all. the u.s.-portugal match was the most viewed soccer match ever in america on espn, according to the nielsen ratings. 18 million people tuned in to the world cup game, all leading up to tomorrow's u.s. match against germany. we have been watching the world cup, a hard job. what do we need to know ahead of this match? >> if you don't know anything about soccer but still want to pretend that you know exactly what is going to happen, the u.s. and germany, the u.s. has a 32% chance of winning or tying the game tomorrow at june -- tomorrow at noon, and if they win they are in. portugal and ghana are going to play at the same time, both games will decide who makes it in. it is not totally guaranteed that the united states will get all scenarios they will probably get out of the group stage.
8:27 am
>> what if they do win, play out all of those scenarios. >> if they win or tie they are definitely in, if the other game ties, no matter what happens, they are in. the only issue is if the u.s. loses and portugal or ghana wins by such a big amount that the number that they score in their game offsets the number of goals that the u.s. scores, and then that could allow them to lose. the u.s. and germany want to both tie the game. if they both tie they are both in, no matter what happens. this whole idea of a collusion among teams, i know that this is a problem among the professional soccer teams. >> this has been a problem in the world cup of four. west germany versus austria in 1982, the score was 1-0. they would both get in a matter what happened.
8:28 am
germany scored a goal and did not do anything for 80 minutes. the crowd and the announcers ifa has theand f games playing -- games playing at separate times, that is why they play at the same time so you can't know what the other side is doing to affect how you will play. >> and they are trying to root this out. >> they are trying to couple the organizations are at the top so it is not surprising that some of them have shenanigans. >> germany is the stronger team? >> they are stronger and if you look at the value of all of the players on the team and the transfer market, ing look at the numbers and found the german team would be worth about $800 million and the u.s. team would only be worth about $80 million. the value of players is really -- >> there is no shortage of drama. the italian coach is stepping down, england lost, and the
8:29 am
uruguay player who bites people. >> he did not even get in trouble for this time. he has not gotten in trouble for anything. >> you saw those photos of the italian soccer player, showing his shoulder with bite marks. >> we have come a long way. in 1982 they were fixing games, publicly and now you see players biting other people, so we have come a long way. eric, thank you so much. to get the latest world cup news and analysis, go to bloomberg.com/rio. the other top headlines outside of the world cup, google getting into the television business. they will unveil a new tech -- a new box at the developers conference today, according to the "wall street journal." the newl be powered by android software which is designed to play movies, games and other content on tv.
