Viacom Sues Cablevision for Unauthorized Streaming

Viacom Inc. sued Cablevision Systems Corp. to halt what it called the unauthorized streaming of its programing on devices such as Apple Inc.'s iPad. The lawsuit was filed in Manhattan federal court, one day after court documents showed that Cablevision's larger rival Time Warner Cable Inc and Viacom are trying to settle a similar dispute, and have put related lawsuits on hold while they try.
