Court of Appeals Affirms Ruling Allowing Aereo Broadcasts

A federal appeals court rejected an appeal by TV station owners of a previous ruling that allowed startup Aereo to stream local TV networks through its website and app. The decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, in New York City, affirms an earlier ruling that Aereo doesn't violate the broadcasters' copyrights in airing programs over the Internet from its farm of mini-antennas in Brooklyn.
