TV on the Net Is OK, Says Federal Court

A federal court recently denied a preliminary injunction request by television broadcasters to prevent a company from broadcasting television over the Internet.  Aereo, a company founded last year, provides access to TV broadcasts to its customers via smartphones, tablets, and Internet-enabled TV’s, as well as the ability to record such programming.  The broadcasters argue that Aereo is retransmitting their signals in violation of copyright law.
