Aereo Files Countersuit Against TV Broadcasters

Aereo Inc, a new online television service backed by Barry Diller's IAC/InterActiveCorp, has filed a countersuit against several broadcasters, seeking a declaration that it does not infringe their copyrights. The countersuit was filed 11 days after broadcasters including Walt Disney Co's ABC, CBS Corp and Comcast Corp's NBCUniversal and Telemundo sued Aereo, seeking an injunction to stop its alleged plan to retransmit their programs without permission.
