Supreme Court Blocks Internet Breach Of Broadcast TV
By DMO Affiliate
The Supreme Court blocked an innovative Internet streaming service Wednesday from potentially upending the way Americans watch television. The justices sided, 6-3, with the nation's major TV networks and cable companies against Aereo, an Internet startup that rebroadcasts live programs to subscribers without paying retransmission fees. The broadcasters had warned that if one company was allowed to avoid those fees, others -- from Dish Network to DirecTV -- surely would follow.
