Supreme Court To Take On Online Broadcasting
(FEDERALJACK) The Supreme Court will hear arguments in a case that could change the future of television. Some of the country’s biggest broadcasters, including CBS and NBC, are suing Aereo, a two-year-old tech company, for copyright infringement. The company developed a tiny antenna that allows anyone with an Internet connection to watch live, broadcast television as it airs. Broadcasters claim that Aereo encourages stealing because neither the company nor its customers pay for redistribution rights.
