Aereo Ruled Illegal By Supreme Court

According to a 6-3 Supreme Court ruling this morning, Aereo – the company that allows subscribers to stream TV stations over the Internet – violates copyright law and must stop functioning as such. It’s a reversal of lower courts’ decisions, which had mostly sided with Aereo because of their business model, which culls its signals from a network of tiny antennas distributed to subscribers. It’s unclear what Aereo’s next move is now, but what’s for sure is that they still believe in their product and believe that the present cable model will be undercut in the near future. It just might not be Aereo doing that undercutting anymore.
