The DOJ sides with broadcasters in Aereo case

|By:, SA News Editor

The DOJ has come in on the side of broadcasters (DIS, CMCSA, CBS, FOXA) in the fight between the media giants and Aereo over its streaming broadcast service

The case is now in front of the Supreme Court with both sides working on written briefs.

In its filing, attorneys from the DOJ argue more than hint that the Supreme Court should offer a narrow view on the Aereo issue without spilling over to other issues on new ways to record shows.

The concern is that the Aereo case ruling by SCOTUS will be used to limit innovative cloud-based media services or online TV ventures.
