In Utah, a federal court placed an injunction on Aereo, which is backed by media mogul Barry Diller, an initial legal win for TV broadcasters against the online video service as the Supreme Court prepares to take up the issue in April, reports the Wall Street Journal. The judge in the case said Aereo, which streams TV signals over the Web for a monthly fee without TV stations' permission, is violating the copyrights of broadcasters. Fox Broadcasting (FOXA) called the ruling "a significant win for both broadcasters and content owners."
