Judge Blocks Website from Streaming TV Shows

A federal judge in New York issued a temporary restraining order prohibiting FilmOn.com Inc. from streaming copyrighted broadcast-television programming as the big networks intensify their fight to stop Internet companies from distributing their content online. Owners of the major broadcast-television networks are suing FilmOn.com, which streams broadcast TV stations online without their consent, grabbing free over-the-air broadcast signals and converting them to online streams.
