WASHINGTON, June 25 (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled TV startup Aereo Inc violates copyright law by using tiny antennas to provide subscribers with broadcast network content via the Internet.

On a 6-3 vote, the court handed a victory to the four major TV broadcasters and cast Aereo's immediate future into doubt.
