I'm not gonna touch on the ruling, other than the fact that the discussion was dropped 2 months ago...
Also, hosting the server in-house might seem like a good idea based on the monetary cost of the server compared to renting it, but there are a few things that make renting worth it.
First and foremost is the issue of bandwidth. I ran into this issue myself a few months ago with my own in-house server. The average home internet connection has abysmal upload speeds, which is what a server needs to send the web info to the client's browser. Renting a server allows for the server host to give much faster access speeds to their clients.
Also, the host generally gives support and maintenance to the server, which otherwise would fall on TTV to do. There are other more intricate reasons as well, but these alone are enough to not bring the server in-house.
