    Aereo is BS

    •Co announced that it has won a preliminary injunction against Aereo in the U.S. District Court for the District of Utah Central Division. Sinclair's television stations, KUTV and KMYU, as well as KSTU, Nexstar Broadcasting and FOX Broadcasting filed the injunction to prevent Aereo from infringing on copyrighted material which Aereo was making available to its customers without permission.
    •In brief, the court concluded that the broadcasters are likely to succeed on the merits of their copyright infringement claims and will be irreparably harmed if a preliminary injunction was not issued. Significantly, the court not only concluded that the broadcasters are likely to succeed, but in fact went further in explicitly finding that "based on the plain language of the 1976 Copyright Act and the clear intent of Congress...Aereo is engaging in copyright infringement." The injunction issued by the court prohibits Aereo from engaging in its business not only in the Salt Lake City DMA, but also throughout the entirety of the Tenth Circuit.
