Supreme Court Hears Arguments On Redistributive TV Service Aereo
Published April 22, 2014
However, the same news reports suggested that several justices were worried that a broad ruling against Aereo could hurt other technologies, like cloud computing. Outside the courthouse, Aereo's Counsel David Frederick said, "We're confident, cautiously optimistic, based on the way the hearing went today." Broadcasters have said that a ruling in favor of Aereo would threaten billions of dollars of retransmission consent revenue that it uses to buy sports rights. The NFL and MLB have sided with the broadcasters, saying that an Aereo win could mean the end of live sports on broadcast television.
