+ - Supreme Court to Hear Aereo Case->

Submitted by schwit1
schwit1 (797399) writes "The Supreme Court will hear broadcasters’ challenge to the legality of startup Aereo, in a case that may not only determine the future of digital streaming of station signals but of network television itself.

Without comment, the justices on Friday agreed to accept ABC Television Stations vs. Aereo, in which the television networks are seeking to halt the Barry Diller-backed venture, contending that its offering of streams of station signals in New York and other markets violates the public performance provisions of the Copyright Act. Justice Samuel Alito took no part in the consideration of the petition, the court said, without elaborating. Typically such recusals are for a potential conflict of interest, and Alito has previously said that his family owned stock in the Walt Disney Co."
